“20Fathoms is a great resource for those who are starting a business. The pooled resources and knowledge available here lets you fill in the gaps in order to help get going with your business.”


Laurel Manke Cofounder, Slabtown Marketing

“20Fathoms’ mentorship program has been hugely valuable to our business. It is a regular check-up that keeps us accountable to our strategic goals and reminds us to zoom out from the day-to-day tasks and consider the bigger picture.”


Stephen Johanson President & Founder, Starboard Solutions Corp.

“20Fathoms provides a valuable ecosystem for companies in their infancy. It is more than a place to go to work, it is a diverse group of people, skills, and perspectives. Starboard has benefited greatly from the relationships built and ideas exchanged in this community.”
