When people ask me what The Founder City Project is and why I'm a part of it, I like to say "It's this thing that saved me." From great business advice to kinship with a small peer group that you can trust with your life, Founder City has made founder life way less lonely and way more successful.

When you declare that you’re founding a company, a whole new dimension of Toronto opens up to you. The best part? The Founder City Project. I trained and joined a peer group of eight incredible founders. Our monthly meetings are my secret for staying sane. It’s a safe space, completely confidential, and without it, being a founder would be a much much much harder job than it already is.

Ben ignited The Founder City Project, which gathered [its first] 200 founders to sign up and commit to a confidential forum group/community in a very short period of time. I am lucky enough to be in the same forum with Ben over the last couple of years.  I would highly recommend working with him.

Founder City helped me better understand the importance and application of self-awareness within senior management teams and ongoing feedback are key to driving company growth.

The Founder City Project helped me face my ego and crush it so I can help others build the world, while giving me the confidence and skills to lead. The skills really gave me the courage [I needed].

I was a bit skeptical coming into the in-person class last week, but then was pleasantly surprised. I thought it taught really useful skills, and I was blown away at how useful the [peer] groups were, even across different industries and experiences.
