A Customized Accelerator for YOUR Business

As B2B SaaS builders, operators and founders, we’ve been on this journey before, and we want to walk it with you – one-to-one.

When we invest in a company, we invest time and attention to its founder, helping you find product market fit, gain traction, and prepare for and raise your next round. 

Every company has different needs, and we customize our accelerator program and support for your company with a dedicated SaaS expert, hand picked mentors, and personalized introductions to investors, advisors and potential customers.

Guidance throughout the fundraising process

Fundraising is a huge part of enabling company growth, but it’s often unchartered territory for founders. Founders who raise with Forum Ventures do better than those who go it alone, and that’s because we walk the journey together, ensuring you have exactly what you need at each step. 

It’s our goal that every founder that joins our portfolio successfully raises their next round of funding so that we can keep building together.  And so, we’ve developed a focused fundraising track to support, guide, and get you that round.

Spend time with the best B2B SaaS experts out there

We round up the top B2B SaaS experts in the industry – those who have built some of the biggest SaaS companies out there - think: Zoom, Gainsight, Zuora – and bring them straight to you through inspiring talks, office hours, and 1:1 guidance. Just to name a few.

Program FAQs

How much do you invest in each company?

We invest $100k USD in each company joining our program. We’re usually the first check in, and we write checks quickly, which founders truly appreciate.

What type of founders would be a good fit for your program?

We love working with founders who are passionate about what they’re building, have strong founder-market fit, and are looking for a fractional co-founder to guide them in the areas of their business that they’re not quite experts in and push them to the next stage. We work best with coachable founders who are both driven and nice.

What is your stance on Diversity & Inclusion?

We believe we have a platform and the responsibility to make We’re committed to building a diverse team, cohort and community. We’re actively working on this by increasing diversity in our mentors, expanding our sourcing avenues to diverse communities, educating our founders to build out their own diverse and inclusive teams, and more.

How does the pitch process work?

  1. Every founder that fills out our Pitch Us form will be reviewed by our investment team. You can expect a response within 1-2 weeks on whether or not it makes sense to have a call with our team for a potential investment. 

How do you evaluate pitches?

We love working with companies from the 0-1 stage and are often the first institutional check into a company. However, these aren’t hard and fast rules as we love to meet companies regardless of stage. While each company is unique and evaluated on a case-by-case basis, some of the basic criteria we look for are teams that are full time and post-MVP. After that, we take into account things like founder-market fit, and the business’ potential to become venture scale one day. We will then look at the risks that come with the business in an effort to get comfortable with an investment decision.

Do I need to be in one of your locations?

Our team resides in 3 locations – Toronto, New York City, and San Francisco – and we have office space for you to come work with us there. However, if you’re not based in one of these locations, that’s OK too! We work with tons of founders remotely, and in different time zones, and we will figure out the best way to work together wherever you are.
