We are a community of digital nomads, innovators and entrepreneurs.

Get support for your startup idea

We connect high-tech founders with a diverse pool of pro-bono mentors - experts in intellectual property, manufacturing, human resources, product and business development. Mentors in the network dedicate a few hours of support to the network each month and agree not to sell to or take equity in a company as part of a formal mentor agreement.

We also host dozens of events each year in an effort to celebrate major milestones and raise awareness of major obstacles and solutions within the startup environment. These events yield new collaborations and introductions to potential founders and teams.
