As a family, we share each other’s ups and downs, give honest feedback (even if it’s painful) and celebrate each win as if it’s our own. There’s always a friendly ear, time for a cup of coffee or company for a strong gin whenever you need it.
‘Founders’ is where we talk just Founders stuff, ‘Founders Hill’ is family stuff. You’ll get a warm reception.

We’re a social bunch. We love hosting meetups, breakfasts and talks at Founders HQ and around conferences we’re attending. Our goal with events is to bring great entrepreneurs, designers, developers and product people together to have interesting debates, meet awesome people and make us think.
A chance to dig into technology we’re excited about
Helping anyone at Founders to host their own events
We have a lovely space and we like to share it
We also have a busy schedule of regular events taking place for Founders folks each week.
Our values are what make Founders what it is. They’re not locked away in board packs and PDFs, these are things we think about every day.
We never stop learning, questioning, wondering. We are passionately curious.
We are all empowered and equally responsible to make Founders great.
We fight as if we are right and listen as if we are wrong.
Taking risks is a good thing. We are daring, ambitious and don’t fear failure.
We think long term. We are not susceptible to "short-termism" - the unhealthy craving for instant gratification that is ruining the world.
Entrepreneurship is neither a science not an art. It’s a practice.
This is your space to make, do and play. Want to work from the hammocks? Go for it. Need to lock yourself away to focus for an hour or two? Do it. Feel like blowing off steam on the ping pong tables or taking five for some Fifa? Feel free! There are meeting rooms that can be booked when needed, small conference rooms, a meditation room and pretty much anything else you can think of. Treat it nice, tidy up after yourself and have fun!
