We are a startup studio. We partner with incredible entrepreneurs to build products and companies that improve how we work.

Europe has a lot of talent and some amazing tech companies but there’s still a lot of work to be done supporting ambitious entrepreneurs at the early stage.

Our focus is bringing ideas from zero to traction. We are pre-angel, pre-seed, pre-accelerator.

Our Process

We believe in testing new ideas fast by building prototypes. We always gain valuable knowledge from prototypes — even the ones that we decide not to move forward with. We fund all projects for the first 12–24 months.

Our Process

Building is part of generating ideas. We believe in launching early and iterating fast. We fund all products for the first 12–24 months.


Explore a problem, identify unmet needs and define areas of opportunity.


Come up with different solutions (angles) to approach the problem.


Build, pitch and throw away fast. The first idea is always wrong.


Iteratively build a real product that a first set of customers use, pay for and love.

Jakob is working on Cuely at Founders after previously working with several B2B SaaS companies in Copenhagen.

I’ve worked in several early stage startups. What attracted me to Founders was the opportunity to work on new ideas that might turn into companies - from scratch. No existing codebase, no bugs … but also no customers. It’s entirely up to you to shape the product and actually realize some of the products that you’ve wanted for so long to exist in the world.

If you love playing around with new ideas and aren't afraid to throw away things that don't work for the end users, maybe this is the place for you!
