We’re convening a group of social impact founders to create a network with similar interests who are facing similar challenges.

Are you a founder who has created a startup to tackle an important, but extraordinarily difficult social problem? Is your goal as much to have a substantial social impact as to generate profits or create wealth? If so, you may face different challenges than more conventional startup founders, and have fewer models to emulate.

On August 25, 2022, we’re convening a group of social impact founders to create a network of FN members with similar interests who are facing similar challenges. The group will serve as a support network for dual-purpose founders on this less-traveled path.

The new group will provide a forum for sharing insights and helpful experiences, making introductions, offering information resources, brainstorming, and mentoring. It will also serve as a space for listening, encouraging and affirming each other on our journeys.

This initial event is open to FN members and social impact founders in the broader startup ecosystem. We’ll introduce ourselves and the challenges we’re addressing, and discuss the opportunities to help each other and perhaps work together to leverage the value of Founders Network for social impact founders.

Agenda:

    • A briefing from Ting on common challenges in the social impact sector
    • Around the horn: introductions and business challenges
    • Next steps

 

About the Speaker:

Ernie Ting is the CEO of CivImpact Labs, launching news, communication and social applications that better inform the public, reduce political polarization, and positively impact our society and democracy. He is a pioneer of innovative approaches that promote healthy social interaction and help business, civic and media organizations influence and engage their audiences and communities in a responsible way. Ting is a social scientist with extensive prior experience in the government and nonprofit sectors as well as business, and as an economics and management consultant.

Testimonials

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.

David Plonsky

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.

Chaitanya Vaidya

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.

Doug Lessing

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.

Becky Splitt

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.

Max Linares

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.

Jarie Bolander

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.

Terence Finn

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.

Alexandra Greenhill

I see Founders Network as one of those necessary resources in the Chicagoland area.

Jason Jacobsohn

The Black Founders initiative allows me to shape this program where we can inspire, engage, and support Black Founders.
