Aligning the interests of CEOs with VCs
VCs advise The Founders Club nominating entrepreneurs to join, vetting applicants and participating as active members of the Club.
Some VCs have invested their own personal cash buying part of the management company of The Founders Club.
VCs that advise the club see deal flow from the other VCs in our club and the extensive deal flow sourced by FC management, CEO and founder members and cash investors in the club.
We talk to CEOs every day and they tell us when their next financing round will happen.
Liquidity provided from The Club enables entrepreneurs to hold out to sell their company at the optimal time aligning entrepreneur and VC interests. Keep entrepreneurs hungry, but not starving or going through a divorce.
Entrepreneurs only diversify a small percentage of their holdings which does not deteriorate any of their ambition to succeed with their own company.
The club provides CEOs and founders with a peer group where they can share and discuss problems that cannot otherwise be discussed with their VCs.
We are a silent partner without any voting rights or corporate governance. The Club does not seek a board seat.
