What Makes Us So Different

1) Quality – We are the most founder-friendly program available. Founders Space has been around 5 years and educated hundreds of startups. We understand exactly what founders need and how to best help them.

2) Flexibility – Our startups are free to come and go as they please. We offer a lot of sessions, and founders can choose which classes they want to attend.

3) Speed – We take all the material that’s typically taught in 3 months and condense it down to an intensive 4-week or 2-week program. Why spend 3 months learning the same thing? Instead of spreading the sessions out, like most accelerators, we have a focused program.

4) Free Space – We offer free co-working space during the term of a program to all of our startups. It’s not just one day a week. Our startups can use the space as their home base.

5) On-Going – Unlike other programs, we don’t close the door on our startups. Even after the program ends, our graduates can drop in anytime and join whatever mentoring sessions, workshops and events are taking place.
