We help founders grow
The role of mentors is to help early stage founders, and meet top tier founders and VCs along the way.
All mentors will
- Contribute 1 hr/week for mentoring
- Answer questions in private forum
Our team will
- Fill up your 1 hour block with mentees each week
- Tag you in the private forum if we need your help
You can expect to meet ~4 mentees each month.
Founders Cafe is an invaluable resource. We're a giving focused community and the people bring a special blend of knowledge and generosity. I get answers to questions in minutes that used to take hours of googling, and with the benefit of experience behind the answers
Founder's cafe has been a great way for me to chat quickly with other founders and share ideas / support them. Meeting other founders, bouncing ideas in the subgroups, learning about topics I'm not familiar with. There's a mix of serial entrepreneurs and new founders and it's really cool to see both sides.
I built a good network in Founders Cafe to take Buji next level. Network from SF to which helps me get introes to investors. Additionally, I learned new things from other founders that I wouldn't have learned by myself.
The value I get from the Founders Cafe community is a group of successful founders who already have revenue. Every time I ask a question, multiple people will respond with customized answers and options. Since everyone is pre-vetted, I know it's information I can trust from people who understand my position. And since its only founders - no investors or mentors - I can ask "dumb" questions freely and get the help I really need.
I love the community of people who genuinely want to help and learn from other founders. Its nice to feel like you are working on a team when you are a solo founder.
For who should join: Anyone in the startup space that is working solo. They have to value being committed and your annual fee helps weed out the people who don't. I think you are on to something.
