Founder is a platform that helps connect people who want to build startups with the aim of connecting the world. 

We use a strong pairing system through short surveys, so we will be able to match and pair with your person of need. 

The Problem

580 MILLION entrepreneurs are dreaming of being the next unicorn with their mind-blowing ideas. Unfortunately, not everyone survives, 90% of startups failing. There are obviously many reasons, but did you know “not having a right team” is one of the top 3 reasons they fail? 

During an in-depth interview with Michelle, a CEO of an AI-based startup in South Korea, I asked her about the struggles of starting her own business. She talked about how and why it took such a long time to find the right people at the right time.

The team dynamic is one of the critical factors of a “successful“ startup. Being in a startup is not going to be all rainbows and sunshine. You need a strong team that supports each other, drive the company forward through all the obstacles.
