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 ;)

Founder of Careteam
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!

Founder of Contentstack
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.

There are many benefits to Founders Network, but for us, the global reach was immensely helpful. Access to founders across the world is an incredible resource for anyone scaling an internet business or trying to navigate new markets.

Founder of Sentry
Founders Network has a personalized touch that you won’t find in many entrepreneur communities. They’re proactive in reaching out to new members, making sure you can take full advantage of your membership package. The community is fantastic, and the deals are pretty sweet too.

Without peer support, founding a startup can be isolating and lonely. Founders Network provides actionable advice, high-quality events, and a truly supportive network of founders at all stages and experience levels.
