changing the game for early stage venture capital

 

 

Being a founder is a long lonely journey. We know because we've been there. When it comes to building a company, money isn't enough. 

you need more than just money and "mentors" who occasionally answer your calls. 

You need a team with proven track records and solid expertise in your industry. You need seasoned advisors and teammates who are committed to partnering in your success for the long term. All this in addition to capital.

Here at FoundersPad, we will never passively invest in your business. Instead, we partner with entrepreneurs who understand that human capital is as valuable as investment capital. Our deep roster of FP Catalyst mentors have deep and specific functional expertise to help your business. They come to the table with our entrepreneurs to bring long-term, very focused and dedicated mentorship to help them hit critical milestones.
