San Francisco Startup Mentor Programs
Post 2008, San Francisco has eclipsed Silicon Valley proper to become the new epicenter of tech startup activity. San Francisco is everything you’d expect from the tech capital of the world. Office rent and housing costs are sky-high, the city is bustling, and there are more startup events on any given evening than you could possibly attend. Because San Francisco is so startup focused, it is one of the best places to meet co-founders, investors, hire talent, and learn how to run an effective high-growth company.
Founders Network, headquartered in San Francisco, sits in the heart of it all. Serving as a connection within the city and to the rest of the world, Founders Network provides a mentorship program that removes geographical limits for its founders. San Francisco members can operate with a network of global support behind them.

Connecting San Francisco Founders with each other and the Founders Network community.
FN’s most valuable asset is the community‚ All the founders on the network are always willing to schedule time to help a fellow founder out or make a quick introduction to their own network.
The thing that I value the most about Founders Network is that I can get advice from a vetted group of entrepreneurs who have faced or are facing the same challenges as me. With the ability to follow specific threads, mute others, and post/reply directly from my email inbox, my questions get answered fast by founders who know what they’re talking about.
The staff of founders network have a sincere desire to help startup founders. I really appreciate the open, transparent philosophy that Founders Network expects from its members.
