Forum Ventures was one of the first SaaS focused accelerators in the United States. Originally founded in Washington DC in 2012, we moved to San Francisco in 2014. We provide entrepreneurs an opportunity to tap into the extensive network of great enterprise companies, mentors and investors the Bay Area has to offer. With the consumerization of the enterprise and continued adoption of the Saas model across every industry, Forum Ventures will focus on investing in very early stage companies that are solving very targeted vertical or horizontally specific pain points with an easy to use application and have a team in place with the relevant operating experience to make it happen.
With offices in San Francisco, New York City, and Melbourne, Australia, founders have the opportunity to grow their companies closer to home. The accelerator is a 4 month program focused on getting the companies access to mentors and educational programming to accelerate execution of best practices, introductions to early adopters of technology with the goal of closing their first few paying clients and opportunities to have meaningful conversations with early stage investors.
