WHAT IS FOUNDERS HOUSE?

Founders House is a shared invitation-only workspace for     ambitious technology startups and experienced tech entrepreneurs.

We like to see it as a tribe of startups building companies side by side and helping each other succeed.

MOVE IN

There’s no first-in-first-served concept, no waiting list, no fairness principle or selection criteria. We’re totally subjective in picking startups that will fit in and that can add value. But to join the house, you need to be:

  • A startup within software or mobile
  • Scalable tech
  • Ambitious and totally dedicated to your startup
  • Brilliant (We love people who are great at what they do)
  • Bring valuable skills or network, which you are willing to share
  • A team of 1 to 10 people, there's room to grow your company at Founders House
  • Social and friendly
To become a part of the workspace:
  • You have to be referred by someone who already 'lives' here.
  • Then you'll be invited to come in and pitch your concept. All residents will have their say in a black box vote, and the result will determine if you are invited to join the family.
  • We do it like this because trust is vital for Founders House to work.
  • You don't have to give up equity. Founders House is not a venture fund. We're on a non-profit mission to create the best workspace for die-hard tech startups.

EVENTS

We love to support the startup community around us, therefore we sometimes host events where people can learn more about technical and commercial aspects of building mobile and technology companies. There’s also a lot of social stuff happening here, some of it open for interesting people who don’t work here.
