Startup Huddle builds local startup communities while crowd-sourcing advice and support, one entrepreneur at a time. Run by the Global Entrepreneurship Network, it consists of monthly gatherings of local community and business leaders, founders, ecosystem builders, investors and others interested in helping startups flourish.
In addition to providing direct support to entrepreneurs, the program addresses a critical element of success for all ecosystems – connectivity. GEN-backed research shows that startup communities with greater levels of local connectedness translate to an increased number of startups – and that founders with high levels of connectivity grow their revenue twice as fast as those with lower levels.
Held regularly on the last Friday of each month, Startup Huddle increases connectivity by convening the community to see each other while listening to and supporting local founders who give 6-minute presentations outlining challenges faced by their company. Each presentation is followed by a 20-minute conversation offering constructive criticism focused on finding solutions and increasing founder know-how.
With new founders cycling through each gathering, and previous presenters joining the audience to give back, the community continues to expand while connections deepen.
