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.
