Track Record

Why would anyone create an ecosystem for founders outside of Berlin? Super easy. Let us walk you through it. The people behind Founders Foundation are determined to build a space for entrepreneurial talents and emerging founders. Anyone can move to the big city and take advantage of established infrastructures. True pioneers bring that spirit home, where companies and other tech entrepreneurs can benefit from digital innovation.

This place is not just a green meadow filled with potential; this is the heart of the German Mittelstand and hidden champions. Founders Foundation thrives thanks to the existing resources. In return, we are building the next generation of tech entrepreneurs. Right here, right now.

Have you ever heard of Reinhard Mohn? If not…you’re missing out! He was not just a visionary, a man of action and a supporter of change — he was one of the greatest innovative thinkers this country has seen. He’s the one that coined the phrase: “Avoiding risks puts a company more at risk than anything else.”

We identify with what he said and how he built up his business when it was at its lowest. Reinhard Mohn left some mighty big footsteps to be filled, and we are aware of responsibility of doing just that.

Our concept is holistic and comprehensive, our goal is to guide when founders take those first steps: with the space, the education, mentoring, coaching and other helpful services. Two years ago, we didn’t know we’d be here today, but it’s happening and we are enjoying every minute of it.

We are proud of what we do. And where we do it.
