New York Startup Mentor Programs
New York is the second highest performing startup ecosystem in the world according to the Startup Genome Report (2018). In the last five years, NYC has grown from $2.3 billion invested in 2012 to $13 billion in 2017, justifying excitement about the future. Only second to Silicon Valley, the NYC startup movement is stamping its own path in the startup world while building a reputation for being able to scale quickly. With access to capital and talent, New York is a fantastic place to start a company.
Founders Network’s mission is in connecting New York City Founders and startups with a global support network. Based in Silicon Valley, Founders Network provides NYC with a direct connection to its west coast counterpart. Our New York members have the ability to operate knowing they have a global mentorship network behind them.

Connecting New York Founders with each other and the Founders Network community.
FN is a quality group of entrepreneurs. Everyone in the room is serious about what he or she is building. On any topic, someone there is qualified to give advice based on actual experience.
Halfway through my first year, my membership had already paid for itself. I was able to learn from my fellow founders, network with investors, and navigate startup challenges by leveraging the forum. The helpful and willing spirit of the group is the key ingredient that makes this community worth every penny.
The forum allows for instant access to a huge group of high caliber founders. What’s interesting about Founders Network is that it’s perfect for a person starting their first company, but also their second, third, and so on.
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.
