Founders Network will host an interactive event where we’ll discuss a variety of crypto applications including stablecoins, NFTS, and more.

Of all the sectors under the Web3 umbrella, cryptocurrency is the one with the most buzz. Last year was a big one for the cryptocurrency market with top contender Bitcoin hitting multiple all-time high prices in 2021. And while the market has experienced major drops in the months since, institutional buy-in from major companies is at an all-time high.

In light of the continued buzz, the blockchain technology backing crypto is seeing wide adoption by startup founders. According to a recent report, 10 percent of early-stage startups are using it.

Interested in joining them? On June 30, Founders Network will host an interactive event for members where we’ll discuss a variety of crypto applications including stablecoins, NFTS, and more.

The event will cover:

  • What is crypto? What are cryptocurrencies? Why should you care?
  • Challenges in crypto startups should consider when building
  • Current trends in cryptocurrency
  • Opportunities for entrepreneurs

Mu Li

Mu Li is the founder of HaHa App (Permutize), a mobile crypto portfolio manager. HaHa’s mission is to lower the barrier to entry for crypto by providing cost tracking and analytics to the mainstream user. He bought his first Bitcoin as an undergrad in 2013 and have been investing heavily ever since. After getting his BS in computer science and working for big tech for a few years, he decided to try his hand at entrepreneurship. At around the same time, he got fed up with calculating his crypto gains/loses and average cost basis using excel. He tried some existing solutions, but they proved inaccurate and hard to use. After realizing that this was a problem many others have as well, he decided to put together a team to tackle this issue. Today, they are working tirelessly to help onboard the next few billion users onto crypto.

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.
