Do you have something to offer entrepreneurs?
Become a #FounderFriend.
Just 1% of businesses successfully raise Angel and VC funding, and over 90% of investors agree that biggest reason for failure is a pitch that lacks clarity. It’s frustrating to see so many great ideal fail due to poor communication. Having a winning pitch will increase your changes of investment by up to 30x. By working in collaboration with SeedReady we’re exited to help startups develop the perfect pitch and raise the vital capital they need.Robot Mascot
Founder Friends unite around four pillars 🙌
Great things happen when you are founder-focused and founder-friendly
The successful founders secret -it’s essential to apply some focus when you’re so early.
Staying on track with the right speed and direction can hold the key to survival.
Founders need to adapt quickly, that’s where flexibility and agility come in.
Collaboration can unlock a superpowers you didn’t even know existed.
We exist to create a better startup ecosystem for all – if you share in this vision, lets unite.
We look for individual contributors, mentors and businesses partners who want to be part of growing community of early stage founders. Joining us as a founder friend is a pledge to support and guide aspiring entrepreneurs.
We look for people with experience in business – perhaps you specialise in a particular discipline (e.g. HR, Finance, Marketing, Technology etc…), have held senior management positions or had entrepreneurial experience, including SeedReady programme and client alumni – the key element is a desire to support founders.
We work with service providers who share our goal of empowering every entrepreneur, everywhere. Alongside our partners, we share our knowledge and expertise freely, supporting early stage founders on their journey from zero to one.
Our founders and Founder Friends can be located anywhere in the World. 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.
We are now seeing more early-stage funding than ever before, but it is all deployed in a small number of deals, later on in the VC cycle leaving pre-seed and seed companies without direct resource and a tailored approach. SeedReady™is entirely focused on this part of the journey, productising and simplifying the start-up journeyAgora
Become a #founderfriend
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.
