WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT VERGE

"Over and again, Verge connects Lessonly to talent, capital, and wisdom. I love that combination."
- Max Yoder, CEO at Lessonly and Founder of The First Fund

“Verge bridges the gap that previously separated diverse groups of developers, entrepreneurs, and investors. Verge is an awesome entrepreneurial community where we can grow our business.”
- Matt Gordon, President and Co-Founder at Expected Behavior

“Entrepreneurs are lucky to have a community like Verge. While the benefits of an extended network are pretty obvious, what’s been most valuable to me is the ability to learn from some of the industry's leading entrepreneurs. I’ve been introduced to tangible tools, processes, and methods that might have otherwise taken me years to learn."
- Ashton Chaffee, Partner at Slane Capital and Co-Author of The Equity Bible

"Getting involved with Verge provided an immediate connection to other entrepreneurs and investors. Verge events have provided a great outlet to kick it with established friends in tech, check out up and coming startups, and meet new people."
- Matt Anderson, Founder at Adproval

Who is Verge for? Verge is a community for entrepreneurs who create value for their team, customers, investors, and partners--everyday. They're not always the ones writing lines of code, but all Vergeteers are builders and often use software to help them build faster, better, stronger. We love the Internet because it allows us to scale what we do and who we can reach. But we don't spend our lives sitting behind a screen, either. We make a habit of picking up the phone—or better yet, grabbing a beer—and having real conversations, with real people, in real time. Verge isn't just for "startups," but our community is for founders who embody the entrepreneurial spirit in every stage of their business.
Why Should I Join Verge? Look, we get it. There are a lot of things you could be doing with your time. There's not enough time in any day and the to-do list never ends. But what's urgent and what's really important? A good founder is focused on getting money in the bank, attracting and retaining talent, and setting the vision and strategic direction. Participating in Verge can help with all three. Learn more about us >>
