JeffFounders Space is a place where makers become founders. They enter with ideas, and in some cases products. They leave with the tools to be founders wherever they go and whatever they do.

Naomi Kokubo and Steve Hoffman, the founders of Founders Space, are dedicated to helping virgin entrepreneurs understand both the opportunities and the pitfalls of starting a business. Lectures and workshops on team building, marketing, legal, public relations, pitching investors and more are led by seasoned entrepreneurs, who are experts in their fields.

Opportunities are provided to pitch investors directly and receive immediate feedback. I saw one startup get an angel investment after their first pitch. And there are numerous networking events organized by Steve and Naomi, as well partner events, that all program participants are invited to for free.

Additionally, Steve produces and stars in a series of short, witty videos on a variety of pertinent topics. There is also a massive trove of online materials that is unique in it’s depth and breadth among the accelerators and incubators that I’m aware of.

Upon completion of the one month boot camp, participants continue to have access to the founders space, the videos, online materials and the networking and pitch events for two more months. Steve and Naomi are a class act. I have recommend their program to would be entrepreneurs I have mentored and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again.
