Often, founders seek a quick piece of advice on a particular subject. …not a full-blown consulting arrangement, but a chance to “bend the ear of someone who’s been there and done that”.
Sometimes, founders want to pick the brains of their peers on a given topic, too.
ActSeed is glad to promote Founders Space as a channel for assistance from people with experience in building and funding companies. Post your question and Founders Space will tap one of their advisors to provide the answer. Not only should you receive the guidance you seek, but the answer will be added to the Founders Space database so other entrepreneurs can benefit from the information.
In addition to the online advisor forum, Founders Space has launched Founders Space Roundtables – monthly events in select cities where an expert presents a featured topic and then the participants break into smaller groups for peer discussion related to the topic. Founders Space plans to launch these roundtables throughout the US, starting with San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, San Diego, Chicago and Houston (coming in January 2011). In order to join a Roundtable, you must be a founder or C-level executive at a growth-oriented startup or emerging company, or you can be an advisor with specific knowledge of the topic being discussed.
Founders Space is spearheaded by Silicon Valley startup vets Steve Hoffman, Publisher & Cofounder, and Naomi Kokubo, Editor & Cofounder. The Founders Space Roundtables are produced by Lyne Noella and Peter Seidel of WavePlay.
