London Startup Mentor Programs

London has grown into a tech powerhouse and is the highest performing startup scene in Europe according to the Startup Genome Report (2018). The city only competes with New York City for being the Fintech capital of the world as it attracted $1.3 billion in VC funding in 2017. The Old Street Roundabout, AKA the Silicon Roundabout, is host to an estimated 50,000 digital tech employees, 30 accelerators, and over 2000 startups

Founders Network’s mission is to connect London Founders and startups with a global support network. The fact is that on average, Silicon Valley startups raise 2-3 times more money in the first stages of development compared to London. Based in Silicon Valley, Founders Network provides London’s Founders the opportunity to access resources from the tech capital.

FN functions provide a unique setting that allows one to really get to know a featured guest and fellow attendees. Over the course of one intimate breakfast, I was able to meet quality people, collect helpful insights, and walk out with 4 valuable connections!

This is no ordinary community, it is so much more, and the engagement of all its members is fantastic!
Younes Bennani
Founder of Jinitto LTD
The Founders Network platform is awesome. The archives are a wealth of information. Any question I have about my startup, all I have to do is search the archives, and the answer is there.

  • Natalie Torin - London Chapter
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.
