What we're about

This group offers a platform for entrepreneurs with complementary skill sets to connect with each other, facilitating the initial team-building process. As strong believers in the lean approach, we feel start-ups should not have to spend their hard-earned funding or personal savings to recruit team members. Instead, you just need the opportunity to meet like-minded co-founders/new team members in a relaxed environment. Whether you're a co-founder with a technical background looking to find a business partner with a commercial awareness and investor relationships or if you already have a core team and are looking to hire your first UX designer, the Founders Club can help you in your search.

Our Meetups:

1. Every first Tuesday of the month we are having the #FoundersMeetup: Find your startup co-founder at Balls Brothers Austin Friars, that is 4 minutes away from Liverpool Station. The premise of this meetup is to have #1MinuteShoutouts (startup elevator pitch + the current needs) of the founders looking for co-founders and anyone offering their skills, followed by a networking session.

2. Every last Tuesday of the month, we are selecting 3 startups to come and pitch in front of our investors. Check it out - Open Pitch Day @Innovify Ventures

3. Lastly, together with our partners, we are organising monthly #StartupAdvisory workshops on topics relevant to startup founders such as: Equity Distribution, Growth Hacking, Prototyping, Seed investment, Crowdfunding EMS Scheme, etc.
