We’re a community of B2B SaaS experts, founders and operators here to support you every step of the way.

Forum for Founders

The early-stage founder is ambitious and resilient. You’ve got a big vision and you’ve left your comfort zone to go after it. But that journey can be challenging and lonely. Sometimes all you need is a little guidance, support and a community to help you forge ahead.

Forum for Founders goes beyond the startup accelerator – it’s a pre-seed program designed to give you all that plus the capital to get your company to the next level. Join us for three jam packed months of inspiring talks, mentorship from SaaS experts, weekly 1:1s with your local MD, events with other founders, and so much more.

"One of the best decisions we’ve ever made was joining Forum"

“One of the best decisions we’ve ever made was joining Forum. They have been so much more than an accelerator and have truly helped us get better in the process, playing a huge part in the momentum of Oncue. It is an honor to partner with Forum and be on this journey together.”
Kate DeWald
Founder & CEO, OnCue

Oncue is a software and booking service for moving companies to make it easier for them to run their business from anywhere. Oncue joined our San Francisco program in Jan 2019 and we were the first check into the company. They have since gone on to raise $15M+ in funding across a seed and Series A round from funds like Bowery Capital, Crosslink Capital and Rethink Impact.

"Everyone on the Forum team is humble"

“Everyone on the Forum team is humble. I think that trickles down to the folks that get admitted into the program. And that’s something that I really appreciated with this group of people."
Chris Herd
Founder & CEO, FirstBase

Chris joined our NYC cohort in early 2020. His company, FirstBase, enables remote worker setup for companies. Chris worked hard throughout the program on his product launch and initial go-to-market strategy. His dedication, execution, and coachability led to a $2M round at the end of the program. With sales skyrocketing, they went on to raise a $13.5M Series A led by Andreessen Horowitz only 9 months later.

Diversity, Inclusion
& Equity at Forum

Our mission is to create a space where everyone—no matter their background—can get access to funding, build their dreams, and push innovation forward.
