FounderWay Update: Get Connected with Your Mentors and Advisors

Get Connected

One of the top reasons for a founder's success is the advisors and mentors they surround themselves with. This month we released our connections feature, supercharging your mentors, advisors, and incubator managers!

How we supercharge your support network

Connecting with your support network on FounderWay, lets them see your progress organically, without the dreadful "how are things going" email or the "update survey". This allows them to stay up to date without taking time away from you and lets them see your challenges and obstacles before they turn into emergencies. Giving them the ability to proactively help and send you resources when you need them most. Help us spread the word with your support network, so we can supercharge them as they help you reach the next level for your business! 🚀
