ToddMy experience at Founders Space was invaluable to me personally, and to my startup eStartAcademy.com! The program really helps you to focus your vision, build an excellent pitch deck, and understand the many fine points of making your company fundable the Silicon Valley way.

The teaching and mentoring features world class individuals who have been there, done that. Scott Gray is a really fun, laid-back guy, who not only teaches extremely well, but he’s in the trenches with you as he builds his own startup – unlike a great many entrepreneurial teachers.

Steve Austin is a seasoned Silicon Valley vet who will push you and challenge you to bring out the best in your business. The parade of mentors in finance, law, marketing, personal development, and HR were incredible as well. On top of all this, great personalized teaching and mentoring, you get access to some phenomenal video content, templates, legal forms, and more.

The program itself is pretty intense – you learn a lot in a short period of time, but in doing so, you save a lot of time versus much longer programs out there, that essentially require you to uproot your entire life for 6 months or more (especially helpful for those of us married with children).

It’s also very flexible, and once you go through, you’re always welcome to come back and participate in future events. The location in San Francisco’s SOMA district is ideal. I stayed in several “startup lofts” with other entrepreneurs that were just a few blocks away, and getting to and from the airport and around town was a snap with the CalTrain station just up the street, bus stops, BART, the Muni, and cable cars all within short walks – allowing you to get anywhere in the Bay Area without the hassles of having to rent (and park) a car.

I highly recommend Founders Space to any entrepreneur who is serious about taking his/her business to the next level!
