Poker is Special…
But It’s Not About the Poker


Networking for founders is both essential and nearly impossible.

We hold two things to be true.

  1. Many (probably most) of the best things that happen for startup founders come from people they know.
  2. The very best source of help for founders is other founders, i.e., a founder’s network should include lots of other founders.

Regrettably, traditional networking events are chock full of everyone except founders and most events don’t support building relationships. In short, they are often a terrible waste of time.

The articles below explain why Startup Poker 2.0 is the answer.
