It takes two to Tango
Welcome! If you want to know what we do and how we do it at Founders Foundation we’re happy to answer all your questions. No, really, we mean it, all of them! Also: If you want to know more about the startups we empower, just ask! That’s also our job!
We love working with journalists, bloggers, print aficionados and digital natives! Whether you’re a baby kitten Generation Z representative or a skeptical remainder of the X Generation, let’s not lose any time and talk! Yes, we answer our phones and we listen to voice messages. We’re kind of nice, too.
this is where we come from
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.
