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.

Connecting London Founders with each other and the Founders Network community.
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!
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.
Each Founders Network Chapter has an appointed Chapter Leadership Team. Made up of founders who have chosen to volunteer their time, they are on deck to give advice, facilitate events, and lead the growth of the Chapter.
