Founded believes in the entrepreneurial power of founders

Where others see obstacles, entrepreneurs recognize opportunities. They turn dreams into  successes. We are here to empower startups so that they exceed their goals and  become the leaders in their market.

By working together, we create an optimal climate for startups and scale-ups. Knowledge institutions, investors, growth programs, communities and inspiring events join forces for (future) founders.

With our collaborative, data-driven approach, we strengthen the ecosystem. With such a strong basis, founders can focus on their growth into an impactful scale-up with decisive solutions to the world's challenges.
