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.
BY THE NUMBERS
WHO LIVES HERE
The startups who live here (they spend so much time here, that “live” is probably the most appropriate term) are selected for their talent and sharing values of ambition and passion.
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:
- Startup within software or mobile
- Passionate and ambitious
- 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 6 people
- Social and friendly
- You have to be referred by someone who already 'lives' here. You can't apply directly.
- 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.
Get in touch with us if you want to know more.
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.
