What we're about

Welcome to 2020 and the next evolution of GoFounders.

This year we’re going to be adding new ideas, new formats, and new faces to our great community that we’re very excited about. We hope you’ll join us.

One of the first new changes for GoFounders this year is focusing our mission. Our dream of a founder-helping-founder community was always at the heart of what we did, but this year we are going to pursue this goal more intently. What does this mean for you? It means that there will be opportunities for mentorship from seasoned founders and greater ownership amongst our community.

Secondly, we’ll be adding new types of events throughout the year, starting with new monthly pitching events, as well as a founder focused podcast. And in case you haven't yet, feel free to join our Slack channel (https://go-founders.slack.com/join/shared_invite/enQtNzIyMTkyMDE5MDI5LTA3OWFhODc0ODM5M2NjOWFmN2NjNzBlMjk2MjM5NzViYTRmMzNhNmM4YjEzN2JkMjNmZGZkNzk1MzQ4OTM3Y2M).

We thank you again for your interest in this group and we look forward to meeting each and every one of you this year. If you’re interested in helping or being a sponsor, please let us know.

Onward and upward!

STARTRS is now GoFounders OC!

GoFounders is a startup founder-only community. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for founders and co-founders to meet, chat, share, and learn from each other.

As startup founders, we found it difficult to find quality social meetups that weren't overly occupied by those looking for work or service providers, so we decided to create our own. Our goal is to create a casual, social, and enriching community that shares common goals, struggles, and successes.

Located in Southern California, GoFounders seeks to be a regional community, with meetups that span Los Angeles and Orange Counties. As the group grows we plan to offer more community opportunities and events, as well as valuable content and experiences. If you are interested in being part of our leadership team, please let us know.

If you have any suggestions or ideas on how we can meet the needs of the founder community, please let us know. We want to make this the best place for founders to be, outside of their own startup.

Hope to see you soon,

Nathan and Charlie
