Support for founders, from founders

It can be lonely at the top.  Especially if you are where the buck stops and there’s no one to confide in.  You don’t want to burden your family, you can’t talk to your team or investors, and professional therapy doesn’t jive with your ramen lifestyle.  Sometimes, the best people to talk to are those who are having the same experience:     other founders.

On localweb.is/u/founder2founder it’s easy to discuss the problems you’re having either anonymously or with a consistent pseudonym. The /u/ means it’s unlisted, so you can’t find it by searching the index of location-based URLs on localweb.is/everything.  The only way you’d know about it is if someone tells you (most likely another founder).   It’s a bit of a loose secret.

Because the URL is location based, the founders you see there in SF will have very SF-like problems, while those in Boston, Toronto, or London will have problems relevant to those places / ecosystems.   Even if you don’t participate in the discussion, it can be encouraging to know that you are not alone, and that others are going through the same things.  And even more encouraging to know that they are nearby.

We are building the local web and sharing a new way to use it each day.
