Who Should Attend
Founders Network creates intimate, founder-only events regularly in Vancouver. This event is designed to bring tech founders together to learn from one another’s pitch, receive valuable insights from VCs, and share their stories. We value authenticity, humility, reciprocity and inclusivity and strive to reflect these values in both our events and the founders and VCs selected to attend.
Why You Should RSVP
Founding a company is a grind and can often feel like a lonely journey. We want to fix that. If you’re looking to build a network of founders to support and guide you on your journey to success, sign up for the event and experience the benefits of Founders Network.

If you don't have a cohort group in something like Founders Network that you can develop long-term relationships with and discuss the same topics that come up with people that you already know, you're probably missing out on something very important.
The number one advantage is the law of compound interest. The longer you stay in a very high-quality network the strong and more authentic relationships you build.
We know each other's business and we know each other's struggles. Having a personal relationship with other founders that is completely confidential and completely authentic gives you a lot of great advice.
FN manages my network for me by connecting me with other founders in my specific industry sector. I've been able to explore business development opportunities, partnerships, etc.
We just saw the first Mexican unicorn come to life this same week which is a fantastic idea. Being part of the Founders Network makes a lot of sense. We see that the Mexico City chapter is growing substantially.
There's a lot of great stuff going on even now in San Francisco. I've found Founders Network has been a great resource for me and for all of the founders I know during these tough times.
It allowed me to meet people who had done this before that had the experience. I was able to explain an issue very briefly and they were able to give me a very detailed response on how they addressed it.
I've used the platform to discover advice, connections, resources, discounts, on important services, connections to investors, and practice on how to pitch. The kind of conversations you can't get anywhere else on youtube or google searches.
I see Founders Network as one of those necessary resources in the Chicagoland area.
The Black Founders initiative allows me to shape this program where we can inspire, engage, and support Black Founders.
