Founders Live Stats
Founders live was an awesome experience! Events like this are not being put on by some random organizations coming in and taking over for a night and then leaving; it feels like a part of a community. I’ve been in a startup community of Phoenix for a few years now and I even knew several people in this audience.
Before this event I didn’t know about all these companies, and now I have a new app on my phone, I have new contacts and business cards, and that could lead to many things, a friend for me, investment for him, you never know what is going to happen at these events. You don’t know if your next customer is gonna be there, next investor, team member, co-founder. If you’re looking for something, show up and make some magic happen!
It helps build your morale, it helps if you’re trying to raise money, it helps if you’re trying to find users, no matter what the case is, even if you’re trying to get a job at a startup, there’s so much opportunity here.
