FN's most valuable asset is the community‚ All the founders on the network are always willing to schedule time to help a fellow founder out or make a quick introduction to their own network.
Mark Oden
Founder of Taskware
The thing that I value the most about Founders Network is that I can get advice from a vetted group of entrepreneurs who have faced or are facing the same challenges as me. With the ability to follow specific threads, mute others, and post/reply directly from my email inbox, my questions get answered fast by founders who know what they're talking about.
Justin Hefter
Founder of Bandura Games
The staff of founders network have a sincere desire to help startup founders. I really appreciate the open, transparent philosophy that Founders Network expects from its members.

In Africa, there is a saying: 'If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.' The great thing about the Founder's Network is that it's not an either/or! We go together farther AND faster, and actually it's way more fun ;)
Alexandra Greenhill
Founder of Careteam
The fn community has been along for my journey through four startups including one dissolution, one major restructure, a successful exit and now a high-growth, funded SaaS company. Being a Founder is sometimes overwhelming and lonely. This community provides guidance and the lift you need when facing your most excruciating obstacles. More importantly, it's a community that genuinely celebrates your successes along the way!
Neha Sampat
Founder of Contentstack
Founding a business can be a lonely pursuit, but being surrounded by a like-minded community enriches the experience. Founders Network is a cadre who provides concrete perspective and insights. In my experience, it's just as enriching to me as a serial entrepreneur to see what and who is coming next, as it would have been to me years ago as a first-time founder to avoid (some!) rookie errors.
