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.

This is my first startup, and Founders Network provided honest feedback and support at every critical stage, from product-market fit to financial forecasting. It turned what could have been a scary experience into a fun and productive one.

No matter what your question is, chances are there’s an answer on Founders Network. Members are active, engaged and love to solve problems. In addition to the programming and perks, that’s what makes the community stand out.

Founder of Contentstack
The founders journey is filled with ups and downs, but being part of the Founders Network community helped me to see issues that arise not as roadblocks but just as obstacles to be overcome with the right support.
