SPECIAL THANKS TO FOUNDERS DEN FOR HOSTING OUR EVENT!

http://www.foundersden.com/


Founders Den is a shared office space and private club for experienced entrepreneurs and their friends.

Fred Wilson recently wrote: “If you are launching a startup or have one that is just one or two people, you should really try to get into a coworking space. It can be more cost effective, but that is not the best reason to do it. You'll get knowledge sharing, energy, and a lof of camaraderie. And you can't put a price on those things when you are doing a startup.

Founders Den's unique approach combines a selectively curated startup community with a focus on experienced entrepreneurs and graduates of accelerator programs. Space at Founders Den is offered on an invite-only basis to startups referred through the networks of the Founders Den community. Founders Den also provides a home base for experienced entrepreneurs who are between projects.
