Silicon Valley Startup Mentor Programs
Silicon Valley is the top destination in the world for tech startups. As the rest of the world races to catch up, the Silicon Valley startup scene continues to push forward with the attitude that built the tech mecca that it is. Silicon Valley is home to the world’s top Venture Firms (Accel, Benchmark, Greylock, and more), top startups (Facebook, Netflix, Slack, and more), and with so many people launching companies, the competition is high, but so are the opportunities.
Founders Network is based in San Francisco, just 45 minutes north of the valley and was built in true Silicon Valley fashion. We exist to connect Founders to a global network of their peers to create a supportive atmosphere to help them succeed. Founders Network offers a mentorship program designed to push our members for success and while supporting. Founders helping Founders.

Connecting Silicon Valley Founders with each other and the Founders Network community.
I firmly believe entrepreneurs need a network of similarly minded people to use for ideas, a sounding board, some networking, and more. Whether you are raising seed rounds and want to get the real scoop on convertible notes vs. SAFEs, or are trying to hire your first VP, there are smart people who are happy to help each other.
I have nothing but love and respect for what Founders Network has built and I’m proud to be affiliated with it. The collaborative spirit, humility and peer mentorship are a safe haven from the ever-hectic world of entrepreneurship. No one has all the answers, and the members of FN have helped me answer so many questions I didn’t even know I had.
The face-to-face interactions with founders, the global connections I make on the forum, and the expertise others provide. The list goes on, but the basis is this; Founders Network brings in awesome people who add value.
