How 1776 Works

1776 startup membership is powered by UNION, our digital network and platform. UNION drives innovation by connecting thousands of startups, business mentors, experts, and investors from ecosystems across five different continents.

Curriculum and Training

UNION offers 40+ courses curated by industry experts. Members enjoy unlimited access to these resources on UNION, and can learn anything from skills like “Data Analytics”, to behaviors like “Raising Your First $200,000”, and even industry specific knowledge like “Understanding the 2015 ‘Every Student Succeeds’ Act”.

Community and Connections

UNION also offers a competitive advantage to early stage startups in the form of its global network. When plugged into UNION, 1776 members immediately gain access to a cross-industry rolodex of entrepreneurs, mentors, experts, and even investors from all over the world.

Real-time Feedback

Every feature in UNION is purposefully designed to help startups refine their business model. Each office hour, event, and course shows founders how successful startups in their space are operating – and how they should adapt their business model accordingly to scale.
