What we're about

Are you looking to start your own company? Are you trying to make the transition from an employee to an entrepreneur?

Startup Founder 101 brings together aspiring and experienced tech entrepreneurs to discuss, meet, and collaborate to build great new startups, and to push the local startup ecosystem forward. In this group you can learn the best practices of starting a company from people who have been there and done that. In addition, you can meet local founders, exchange ideas, get feedback, engage in startup workshops, meet business partners, and more.

Our Meetups will be free, local community events where top local startup founders and experts share their lessons learned and provide feedback on your ideas. We will also host informal networking events so that you can meet other founders, potential co-founders, and others with similar business interests.

Join the group to be invited to our next event!
