Toronto Startup Mentor Programs

The startup scene in Toronto is just apart of the overall tech corridor that extends from the city to Waterloo. Known for being the most immigrant-friendly city in the world, Toronto’s startup scene is bold in its ability to go international for resources and has no worries about attracting world-class talent. Ranked by the Startup Genome Project (2017), as one of the top 20 strongest ecosystems in the world, Toronto is an excellent place to launch your startup.

Founders Network compliments Toronto’s international views by providing startup Founders access to a global community of its peers, investors, and mentors. We’re a mentorship program that supports local tech ecosystems and facilitates the growth of Toronto’s Founders Network members.

Galen Buckwalter
Founder of eHarmony


I really like the intimate format of FN’s Toronto Chapter events. They allow you to go deeper with some really interesting founders. Combined with access to the global network on FN’s platform, really complement the local Toronto ecosystem nicely.

Yoav Schwartz
Co-Founder of Uberflip

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.

Local Leadership
Each Founders Network Chapter has an appointed Regional Leadership Team. Made up of founders who have chosen to volunteer their time, they are on deck to give advice, facilitate events, and lead the growth of the Chapter.
