& Startup Resources
Bangalore Startup Mentor Programs
The Bengaluru startup scene, often dubbed the Silicon Valley of India, is the technological heart of India. According to the Startup Genome Report (2018), salaries are 13 times cheaper compared to Silicon Valley and 4 times cheaper than the average across Asia-Pacific. With this cost efficiency and the technical driven background of the majority of the city’s Founders, Benglaru is a fantastic place for a startup.
Founders Network’s mission is in connecting Bengaluru’s Founders and startups with a global support network. The fact is, Silicon Valley has access to more resources for Founders for connections and funding. Based in Silicon Valley, Founders Network provides Bengaluru’s Founders the opportunity to access resources from the tech capital.

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.
Each Founders Network Chapter has an appointed Regional Leadership Team. Made up of founders who have chosen to volunteer their time, they are on deck to give advice, facilitate events, and lead the growth of the Chapter.
