Vancouver Startup Mentor Programs
The startup scene in Vancouver has taken over the historic area of Gastown. With almost 40% of the downtown real estate being taken over by tech companies, the city is literally being consumed by the movement. Startup Genome’s Report (2018) has named Vancouver the #15 startup ecosystem in the world. With Canada’s supportive immigration policy and its recent rise on the startup list, Vancouver has earned the title Silicon Valley North.
Founders Network’s mission in Vancouver is connecting its Founders and startups with a global support network. Based in Silicon Valley, Founders Network provides Vancouver the ability to access resources only available in the tech capital of the world. We’re a mentorship program that stands behind our Vancouver members.

Connecting Vancouver Founders with each other and the Founders Network community.
I’ve really enjoyed becoming a member of Founders Network. Members are not only helpful, but eager to help their fellow founders. It’s not just a place where you can go and receive help and advice, but is an opportunity for seasoned founders to give back to fledging founders in a meaningful way that has real impact.
As a later stage FN’er, I was able to receive very valuable feedback on business strategy from a top investor outside of a pitching context. Provided the investor’s guidance, and the support of the FN team, I’m making decisions more objectively and have a more defined product.
I love how the Network encourages me. It inspires me hearing what other founders are doing. And I like how the forum content is organized. I find with slack or other network groups, it’s hard to follow everything that’s happening. FN does a great job of keeping the wealth of information on the platform easily accessible.
