Foundership started out as a shared passion among two 2x entrepreneurs who had a common passion for enabling early-stage startups to succeed more. We believed that execution is the key to a startup's success, where the founders and teams relentlessly focus on the goals and achieve their goals consistently over a long period of time.
We started supporting founders for probono in 2020. We coached, guided, and connected ~200 founders in a single year in 2020. We could see huge pains and gaps in the idea to seed-stage startups.
We started coaching founders in a structured manner in 2021 and saw common traits and patterns amongst founders. Those who are willing to make a strong difference are more to be held accountable and do not offer excuses for not commitments, instead, they own the responsibility to the goals they committed.
Providing contextual inputs per startups depending on their stage, constraints, and growth opportunities, made many of them break out and succeed.
We started attracting incredible Founders & Leaders attention to join as Coach! Many coaches wanted to get involved in a deeper way to ensure they have skin in the game approach than a transactional relationship. They liked Foundership’s Philosophy: We coach Startups to succeed and co-create wealth in the process.
Community is vital for every startup ecosystem, especially for Web3. Each of us as an ecosystem player brings our network to play to get things done or help connect people to meet their goals. But how do you sustain this momentum? With poor incentive structures, all communities eventually die down or have <1% active contributors.
One of the key tenets of our community is the “Give First” philosophy, which encourages everyone to share first - Knowledge, Information, Networks, Connections & Referrals. Reward the community for their Karma. Explore the future to Tokenize the rewards for the community!
We’re thankful for the trust from the Web3 community for our Give First & Co-create Wealth philosophy.
As the crypto space has evolved incredibly quickly over the years with Blockchain technologies, we’ve seen an emergence of new Web3 projects looking to bring new ideas and innovations to the forefront of society.
However, the path to success can be a long and bumpy one, especially with a lack of regulatory clarity, rapidly evolving Web3 tech stacks, lack of passionate community and access to incredible operators.
These signals from Web3 projects, coaches, and the community, made us rethink a personalized, contextualized, and incentivized model that benefits all the stakeholders associated with Foundership - Startups, Coaches and the Community.
Someone once said: “In hard times, focus on the teams who build things other people use”.
With many more innovations to come, we believe Foundership will be the go-to choice for Builders & Founders to build Web3 projects for the global markets.
