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!

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.
