Boston Startup Mentor Programs
Boston holds an interesting place in the startup world. During the dotcom era, Boston rivaled Silicon Valley for the crown of the US tech scene. Silicon Valley won out, due to its culture of risk-taking and the willingness of local VCs to make huge bets on early-stage companies. However, Boston remains a top-tier startup city, with it’s access to top-talent, proximity to Harvard, MIT, and other elite universities, and the number of major tech companies in the area that can help drive startups forward.
Founders Network takes the local support Boston’s Founders receive and amplifies it to a global scale. Our members gain access to connections to fellow Founders and mentors in Boston and all over the world. Based in Silicon Valley, Founders Network is a mentorship program with a mission of helping our Boston members grow.

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.
