Denver Startup Mentor Programs

High in the mountains, the Denver tech area has a growing startup culture. Highlighted by the annual Denver Startup Week, the passion in this community is easily seen. Founders and entrepreneurs work in the Commons on Champa to access tools and have a place to showcase their work to Venture Capitalists and large businesses.

Founders Network’s mission is in connecting Founders in Denver with a global support network. Providing even more ability to access resources like peer mentorship, essential discounts, and investment connections is why Founders Network exists. We’re a mentorship program that supports Denver startup ecosystems and facilitates the growth of our local members.

Galen Buckwalter
Founder of eHarmony

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.

Linden Tibbets
Founder of IFTTT

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.

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 ;)

Alexandra Greenhill
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!

Neha Sampat
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.
