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 ;)

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.

Founder of Careteam
After every Founders Network event I’ve attended, I walk away with actionable information and new contacts. I regularly turn to this community to test out hypotheses, and have been introduced to potential investors through Founders Network.

Founder of Contentstack
The Founders Network team was proactive and extremely helpful in their outreach, making it so easy to get the membership benefits. Within a few weeks of joining, I polished up our business plan, pricing strategy...not to mention saving a bundle.”
