Austin Startup Mentor Programs

Austin, aka the Silicon Hills, features low taxes and better than average real estate costs. The city brings the startup perks of Silicon Valley with a cost of living lower than most major metropolitan cities. According to the Startup Genome Report (2018), 19% percent of all VC investment in Austin over the last several years went to AI, Analytics, and Big Data startups. Host to the famous South by Southwest festival (SXSW), Austin attracts global leading knowledge and funding to its city.

Founders Network’s mission is to connect Austin Founders and startups with a global support network. Based in Silicon Valley, Founders Network provides Austin the ability to access resources only available in the tech capital of the world. We’re a mentorship program that compliments local tech ecosystems and facilitates the growth of local Founders Network members.

Galen Buckwalter
Founder of eHarmony

I’m a very technical person. Not big on the business side of things. Thanks to Founders Network, I’ve received valuable, actionable business advice from both founders and investors alike.

Linden Tibbets
Founder of IFTTT

I would say it’s a very reasonable cost to tap into a worldwide network of entrepreneurs who, as a group, have gone through just about everything you can imagine and have a world of experience they can offer to you.
