About the Entrepreneurship Topic

Entrepreneurial communities are online communities where entrepreneurs can connect with one another, share ideas, and offer advice. They can be a leverage point for businesses that are just beginning to get off the ground, and can help provide advice, mentorship, and support to those that are looking to grow. If you're looking for an entrepreneurship organization or group to join, this list is for you. This list of communities is for current entrepreneurs, solo entrepreneurs, serial entrepreneurs, and those that are entrepreneurially curious. Entrepreneurial communities are quite popular across many platforms these days, and picking a community to join will likely be dependant on the types of community members. Some are geared towards beginner/advanced levels of entrepreneurship, and some are focused on specific subsets of entrepreneurship (like SaaS, or Growth).

About Online Communities on Independent Platforms

These are online communities that are hosted on their own platform, and not a part of a social network like Reddit/Facebook/LinkedIn, or communication platform like Slack and Discord. Although they may utilize community software like circle.so to implement the features of their community, they have their own brand and identity.
