“In Founders Den, a private club that relies on the power of persuasion”

Founders Den was covered by Connie Loizos at TechCrunch:

If you live in San Francisco and know much about tech startups, you’ve likely heard of Founders Den, a shared office space and private club for startups and investors that leases 8,500 square feet on a nondescript block in San Francisco.

Seemingly, being in the mix has benefited shorter-term residents, too. In addition to SocialCam and Docker, some of Founders Den’s better-known tenants have included the point-of-sale software maker Revel Systems, which was reportedly in talks with IBM earlier this year about an acquisition; and the venture firm SoftTech VC, which closed on a record $150 million in commitments this past summer.

Certainly, people who are invited into the club by the founders — usually through a direct connection or a friend of a friend — seem to like being there. Charles Hudson, a partner with SoftTech who more recently left to launch his own seed-stage outfit, is back at Founders Den while he gets his new firm off the ground.

Other regulars on the scene include serial entrepreneur Jay Adelson, Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, serial entrepreneur and Y Combinator partner Justin Kan and prolific angel investor Gil Penchina.
