Founders is a startup studio. Together with exceptional entrepreneurs, we build companies from scratch and scale them as independent companies when they gain traction. Whether it’s a bank for freelancers, a way to kill the pain of doing expenses or reimagining life in cities, we are always on the lookout for opportunities to improve the way people work and live.

Co-founder role

As a Co-founder your objective is to turn an idea into a product and a product into a company. You will work on one of our early stage ideas together with us. We expect you to act as a founder from day one and show that you have what it takes to lead a team and build a successful company.

As part of Founders, you work with a team of people who are experts in design, finance, legal, product development, growth, comms and do nothing else than building companies and products. We are in it with you 100% and we get our hands dirty, just like we expect you to.

Good company

Our co-founders are typically passionate entrepreneurs (with a tech, design or business background) or business professionals with deep industry expertise. We value experience and previous accomplishments but what we value above all else is attitude.
