FoundersBoost is a fantastic program that I would recommend to any startup. World-class from leadership to organization.

This 8 week program is a must for every first time founders. It's not a pitch practice, its an incredible collaboration with great mentors and coaches that elevate the ideating thoughts to a company with vision, strategy and focus. A true boosting experience for first time founders and that's Foundersboost for me!

FoundersBoost is a quick yet concrete program to help your startup move forward during your early stage. The mentoring sessions were very helpful to define improvements on the pitch as well as on the business model. The time to dedicate is also adequate. For all these reasons I would definitely recommend FoundersBoost.

The program was a great first step for my business in preparation for the next step. We are grateful for the opportunity that is so rarely given to early stage companies.

Just as the pandemic broke out in April 2020, we found hope in the FoundersBoost program – with an amazing set of mentors, a tactical curriculum, and a laser focus on storytelling, the team at Sunny Day Fund remained resilient and was able to position itself for success with customers, funding, hiring, and acceleration.
