So, you’re thinking about launching that startup and wondering what are some of the resources available in your city? Come to think of it, wouldn’t it be great if there was a complete startup guide with all the relevant information? In comes FoundersBeta Startup City Guide! We have been working on compiling and releasing the most comprehensive startup city guide; everything you need to build your startup in a particular city under one roof. Our team has compiled a massive excel spreadsheet that we will add to our site. So get ready! The startup city guide project will be useful for:

  • Startup founders that are new to the city and looking to have a handy guide around I have experienced this before and when you’re new to a city, it’s all about finding those gem opportunities to connect!
  • Established companies wanting to explore opportunities with startups. This can be via expansion, recruitment, sponsorship, and other ways to get involved
  • Getting a sense of entrepreneurial activities around the world and see which city’s resources suit your startup’s idea best! 
  • Connecting with the right resources at your fingertips without having to browse so many sites to find a specific resource. For example, funding for your startup? Hop onto our page.

We are looking to initially bring the following in each city across the globe:

  • Startup Meetups – this consist of regular events hosted on consistent basis
  • Startup Conferences and Annual Events – events that are once a year.
  • Hackathons
  • Startup Competitions
  • Startup Incubators and Accelerators
  • Coworking Space and Maker Space – this is a good place to connect with founders
  • Funding – Startups are always tend to look for this!
  • Venture Capital – If you’re looking for a substantial backing, and fast!
  • Educational Opportunities
  • Industry Associations
  • Should we include other categories? Places to visit? Places to Eat?

Our project has kicked off in the following cities (so far…more to come!):

  • Toronto
  • San Francisco
  • New York
  • Waterloo

Have any suggestions for resources that we’re able to add? Do you know any hidden gems for startups to connect? Whether this is funding, meetups, startups competitions and more.  Let us know as we map out the Startup City project! So far we launched in Toronto and San Francisco with many more to come. Hope you find what you’re looking for as we continue to span across the globe and expand our global startup guide!
