Founders Forum – April 2019

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

When Margaret Mead penned those words, she can’t have known how significant they would turn out to be. She wouldn’t have foreseen how a tiny photo messaging app could be worth billions. It’s endlessly amusing that the entire Star Wars franchise turned out to be worth just 2x the value of Instagram.

So Small Teams. Committed people. Change the world.

Last nights inaugural Raise Founders Forum was a small team looking to change the world and learn whilst doing so

It was a great round table discussion with great founders.

The launch topic was

“What do startups / founders need?”

  • Founders need connections and business referrals. Taking time to ask for help, offering support and connections is so invaluable in the founder world
  • Founders need to keep focused on making the money
  • Founders with good ideas that have a tech application need to learn the tech lingo
  • Founders need to understand the investment jungle and what combination of angel investment, grant funding and support is necessary for their business

We will be running monthly Founder Forums covering relevant topics for Founders – with the next one in May
