Paris Startup Mentor Programs

Paris has a unique startup culture. In a plan to attract foreign talent, at least 30% of startups in Paris incubators must be foreign. Paris has shown its commitment to building a startup tech hub with Station F, the world’s largest coworking and incubation space. With President Macron’s pledge to make France a “country of Unicorns”, Paris becomes an exciting place to build a startup.

As Paris aims to grow its startup scene, Founders Network aims to bridge the gap with offering a global network. Positioned in the heart of startups in San Francisco, Founders Network’s mission is in facilitating Founder mentoring, investments and relationships. We’re a mentorship program built to help our Paris members grow.

You'll learn more from the threads seen here everyday than you did in most courses you've ever waded through. So dive in, everyone is here because this is exactly what we want to be doing.
Galen Buckwalter
Founder of eHarmony
I'm a very technical person. Not big on the business side of things. Thanks to Founders Network, I've received valuable, actionable business advice from both founders and investors alike.
Linden Tibbets
Founder of IFTTT
I would say it's a very reasonable cost to tap into a worldwide network of entrepreneurs who, as a group, have gone through just about everything you can imagine and have a world of experience they can offer to you.

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.
