At Founder Institute San Francisco, we’re super excited to be partnering with Startup Oasis!!

About Startup Oasis:

“Let’s be real”.  Their vision is to bridge the gap between the dreaming and the doing.  They’ve created a grassroots, different type of forum for early-stage founders and are focused on community building and ongoing relationship based networking.

“As many early stage startup Founders…

  • You’re hard-pressed to find the actual people or resources you need without emptying your bank accounts or destroying any startup capital you may have needed.”
  • Virtual or “spray & pray” networking events haven’t been super effective or fruitful.
  • “Keep us in the loop, we’ll be here when/if you grow” isn’t helpful for what you need now.

Given the right conditions, the magic just happens.  Stop wandering the desert and join the Oasis.
