Founders need to adapt quickly, that's where flexibility and agility come in.

Collaboration

Our founders and Founder Friends can be located anywhere in the World, so geography is not an issue.

Benefits of being a #FounderFriend

Founder Friends strive to be up to date with current knowledge to pass on whilst also learning from new founders. Becoming a Founder Friend is a great way to be exposed to the latest and greatest innovations, and a constant stream of new disruptions who are taking action on your advice and knowledge. Joining us is a great way to elevate your personal brand whilst increasing your network, and commercial opportunities through connection; although we encourage our Founder Friends to always support first, and opportunities which arise should be based genuinely on startup friendly rates.

What's the commitment?

We appreciate that your time is limited, but all we ask is for 1 hour per month. However, we often find that our founder friends enjoy the experience so much that they give more time than the required.
