VFF Community

  The VFF Community is where our startups connect with, learn from, and support each other.  We work with a diverse group of companies and top talent in the Pacific Northwest.  While we believe VFF brings value to the table, we know just as much experience lies in each other.  By leveraging the collective knowledge of our founders and their teams, we ensure that when someone encounters a problem, the people who have solved it in the past are only one Slack message away.  

Whether it’s hosting summits, curating resources, or planning meetups, we are committed to supporting our community in whatever it needs.

These are some of the initiatives you can expect to see in the VFF Community:

Executive Meetups

VFF hosts regular meetups to connect like-minded professionals within our community in key departments. Ex. Marketing, HR, Engineering, Finance, CEOs


VFF has partnered with companies, who we consider “best-in-class”, to provide our community with the top software and services at exclusive preferential rates. Ex. HubSpot, Boast Capital, BlankSlate Partners

CEO Summit

Once a year, we gather our CEOs to hear from trusted industry experts, share learnings and experiences, build meaningful relationships – and just have a little fun!

Founders Dinners

We get all of our founders together annually to give an update on VFF, introduce new members to the community, and celebrate our founders!


A place for community members to ask questions, share resources, and celebrate each other! There are also dedicated channels to connect each executive meetup group between in-person meetings.

Resource Database

Our community has access to our ever-growing pool of articles and resources. Ex. Executive Compensation Database, SaaS / E-Commerce / Marketplace Playbooks, Guides to Running a Successful Financing Process.
