Boston Startup Mentor Programs
Boston is one of the biggest tech startup ecosystems in the world, consistently ranking in the top 3 for venture capital investment in the United States. Boston's tech startup ecosystem is fed by a steady supply of top talent from leading higher education institutions located there, including Harvard and MIT. A number of tier one venture capital firms like Battery Ventures, CRV, General Catalyst and Spark Capital call Boston home as do many leading, and acquisitive, tech corporates.
Founders Network's Boston Chapter was launched in September of 2020 to support select tech founders across New England with a personalized and authentic peer mentorship community. Member benefits include local Boston mentorship programs, a global mentoring platform and a proactive member success team that facilitates support from over 600+ tech startup founders, investors and partners.

Connecting Boston Founders with each other and the Founders Network community.
You'll learn more from the threads seen here everyday than you did in most courses you've ever waded through. So dive in, everyone is here because this is exactly what we want to be doing.
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.

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 ;)
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!
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.
