Founders: Put your networking on autopilot

Office Hours

Founders of venture-backed startups are constantly being told by investors and others how important networking is to successfully building a company:

  • “You need to find mentors”
  • “You need to grow your network”
  • “You should be talking to one investor per month, even when you’re not raising”
  • "You need to talk to other founders"
  • “You should speak with this expert" (even if you don’t have an immediate need for their input)

As a founder, it's likely understand the value of networking and mentorship, but the brutal realities of running a business can often relegate development of these crucial relationships to the back-burner.

Let's face it: building a business is a herculean task. You're navigating product development, hiring top talent, managing finances, and juggling a thousand other pressing priorities.

Amidst all these, building a robust network of mentors and peers can start to seem like an insurmountable challenge.

We've been there, caught in the cycle of knowing we need to do something but struggling to find the time.
