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.

As a first-time founder, Founders Network was instrumental in helping to land my first set of customers. The relationships I’ve built have been extremely valuable not just in building my business, but for support and encouragement along the way.
David Cramer
Founder of Sentry
Founders Network helped me navigate my startup through a critical fundraising period, thanks to the honesty advice and support of the adtech cohort. The events are excellent: You gain genuine insider knowledge, and there’s a real sense of community among founders who want to help each other succeed.
Neha Sampat
Founder of Contentstack
Founding a company can be overwhelming at times, and it’s easy to get lost in a flood of information and resources targeted at founders. The Founders Network community helps to keep things in perspective, and to stay focused on what really matters for your startup.
