We Train the Next Generation of Successful Founders and build an Impactful B2B Startup Ecosystem in the Heart of the German Mittelstand
At the Founders Foundation, we train the next generation of successful founders, right in the heart of the German Mittelstand – the family businesses, the salt-of-the-earth type companies that form the backbone of the German economy. We are pioneering the training of founders using our very own Founders Foundation Education Model.
By creating a lasting and effective B2B startup ecosystem, we connect New and Old Business. We actively help shape the digital future out of Ostwestfalen-Lippe, a region characterized by both modern urban spaces and large rural areas. In this context, we launched the tech conference “Hinterland of Things” in 2018.
As a non-profit organization, the heart of all our efforts is the success- and impactful cultivation of tomorrow’s founders. We do not take any shares in the companies.
