About Us

Idea Forge uses its community to identify, organize, and collectively move the rapidly evolving startup industry forward. We help organizations find, evaluate, and execute new ideas by working with communities to provide events and resources. Idea Forge was formed by a group of startup practitioners with the mission of advancing the industry through interface, education, data collection and public dialog. Built for the needs of our community, Idea Forge values and uses feedback from our users to assist in deploying new features and improving existing ones.

Users
Our community is growing quickly with new users joining daily. Our goal is to have a community in every country by the end of 2017.
Social Media
Innovation needs to be cultivated and shared as fast as possible. We drive traffic to our site through multiple social media channels and also share our sponsor news.
Newsletter
Our newsletter is not just for startups; it goes out to CEOs, CFOs, CTOs, investors, managers, students, city/county officials, marketing, IT, Engineers, HR and other centers of influence.
Master Smiths
A community can't just be online. It needs people who are hands-on in their local area. People who know the industry, help run events, mentor and network. We call them our Master Smiths. See our growing list.
Events
Our signature events are the Startup Launchpads that bring the community together to network. We've made them easy to replicate and any Master Smith can host in their area.
