São Paulo Startup Mentor Programs

São Paulo is by far the most mature startup scene in Brazil. Sitting in the financial capital of Brazil, São Paulo also offers the commerce, fashion, food, music, and sport that attract so many to the city. Despite the large size of the city, São Paulo's startup ecosystem manages to maintain a sense of cohesion among each other. São Paulo is a great startup destination in Brazil.

Founders Network is connecting Founders in São Paulo to a global network. We’re a mentorship program that builds relationships between Founders on a global scale. Founders Network supports Sao Paulo's startup scene as we open up more connections for its Founders.

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.
