Communitech’s Strategic Growth Team is here to help you understand your business, commercialize your product and get to where you want to go. It’s free to join and all of our startups get a complimentary two-year Communitech membership.

Startups receive world-class coaching from our advisors and mentors, access to Communitech events at discounted prices (actually, they’re often free) and can leverage our network to connect with investors, peers and potential customers. When you work with us, you’ll be top-of-mind for funding opportunities and pitch competitions and will have access to training and workshops to help you scale.


We’re here to guide you, but we won’t hold your hand. Engaging with our Strategic Growth Team has its perks, but it’s like a gym membership—it only works if you take advantage of what’s offered.


Working with Communitech starts with joining our Strategic Growth Team. It’s free.
