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.

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.
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.
We have some amazing members. With over 600 tech founders, 100 events a year, 90% Monthly Active Users (MAU), there’s no other network as experienced and helpful.
