We’re excited to be teaming up with Hackers /Founders to host a networking here at the Boost offices on Wednesday, November 19.


Hackers / Founders started in 2008 as a small meetup with five guys at a bar. Over beer, burgers and chatter about big problems such as launching startups and hacking into the wee hours of the night, something magical happened. Hackers / Founders organizers Jonathan and Laura Nelson saw the need to establish a legitimate organization for this traditionally under-served group of Silicon Valley early-stage entrepreneurs. No ecosystem at the time existed to assist these folks, so Hackers / Founders, Inc. was launched in 2011 as a startup dedicated to assisting other startups.


Since then, Hackers / Founders has grown to 130,000+ members in 65 cities and 27 countries in just six years!


The networking event features speaker Nir Eyal, author of “Hooked,” a guide to building habit-forming technology, written for product managers, designers, marketers, and startup founders. The book includes:

  • Practical insights to create habits that stick.
  • Actionable steps for building products people love and can’t put down.
  • Behavioral techniques used by Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and others.


Mark your calendars now!
