Foundr V1.0: Lessons From The Greatest Entrepreneurs Today

Starting a business? Thinking about it? Startup veteran? Or are you just looking to improve your company?

Right now we’re living in the golden age of entrepreneurship where the rules of the game have changed — there has never been a better time in history to start or be building a business.

But with so much noise on what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur and build a successful business, it’s so hard to know who to follow and what to trust.

 

 

 

And it just so happens that we’ve interviewed them, wrote everything down and we’ve been slaving away to put it all together for people like you.


Foundr Version 1.0 is a beautifully designed coffee table book that contains nothing but actionable tips, strategies and advice from world-changing individuals like Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington and Seth Godin just to name a few.

Just awesome. We know. We know.

 

 (Share our Kickstarter Campaign and get 3 FREE EBOOKS!)

 

Foundr Version 1.0 features 7 comprehensive chapters covering everything from starting a business, building a team, raising capital and more from over 30 game-changing entrepreneurs — we’re not talking a simple collection of mumbo-jumbo interviews where you dig for useful little nuggets of gold: we’ve broken it down to deliver the stuff you actually need to know immediately.

 

 

For the past three years, Foundr Magazine has interviewed hundreds of successful entrepreneurs in our magazine that have disrupted every industry possible from Food to Media to Meditation! We’ve compiled the best bits to share with you.

 


Find out why and how the best in the world got to where they are today. We take a look at not only multi-million dollar companies, but companies that have changed the world as we know it and put them under the magnifying glass. We find out for you that pivotal moment, that pivotal step that made them what they are today.

Learn how Joel Gascoigne took an idea to a product with paying customers in just seven weeks, and went on to hit 1 million users.

Zipcar created a revolutionary business model in the early days of the sharing economy and challenged the concept of car ownership, rising to become a world leader in transportation.

Since Foundr was nothing more than a laptop balanced on Nathan Chan’s lap, we’ve experienced our own fair share of ups and downs on our journey to success. We know what it’s like in the trenches and to suffer those inevitable setbacks and failures every entrepreneur goes through. But one thing became clear — getting through was only possible because we could learn from the best in the world. More than anyone else, we understand the value of learning from the experiences of others and how to stand on the shoulders of giants.


Since March 2013, we we’ve been dedicated to helping entrepreneurs and startups of all shapes and sizes achieve their potential. We’ve had the privilege of interviewing some of the greatest entrepreneurs of our generation and are proud to share knowledge that’s by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs.


As an entrepreneur your most important resource is time — and you can’t be wasting it searching through hours and hours of content to find what's right for you. We’ve done all the hard work and compiled all of the best information from over three years and hundreds of interviews.


We want to give you access to not only the same lessons that have led to our success, but the same lessons that have led to the rise of world-changing companies like AOL, Virgin Group, Huffington Post, Zipcar, Y Combinator, and so many others!

 

 “Foundr’s the perfect platform for the new generation of entrepreneurs who don’t know where to go or what to do. Aspiring entrepreneur looking to start your business? I highly recommend checking out Foundr – an invaluable resource to help get your business off the ground.”


— Daymond John, Founder of FUBU


“If you’re looking for a great resource to hear the stories of today’s successful entrepreneurs and learn what’s needed to be successful yourself, Foundr is where you should be allocating your time.”

— Gary Vaynerchuk, Founder of VaynerMedia


“If you are looking to learn about entrepreneurship you have to check out Foundr. They have awesome interviews with some of the world’s leading business experts.”

— Marie Forleo, Founder of MarieTV


For the better half of a year the Foundr team have been working diligently to bring this book to life. We’ve spared no expense in making sure we deliver the best reading experience.


We’ve painstakingly chosen the entrepreneurs to feature, we’ve finalised the manuscript and we’ve carefully crafted a beautiful design — there’s only one thing left to do:


We need your help so that we can work with a brilliant printer to create and distribute the first 3000 copies of this glorious book and place it in the hands of people all around the world.

 

 

 

 EXCLUSIVE to Kickstarter only.

 

 

And... here are our stretch goals!

Risks and challenges

To get straight to the point, our risks are low. We’ve been working tirelessly on this project for over 6 months now to make sure that all we need to do is get the manuscript to the printer and we can start printing. We have sourced a printer, but you never know what could go wrong with printing complications out of our hand.

While this is the first physical product we’ve ever produced we have created a network of incredibly talented and knowledgeable people around us to help fill in any gaps we might have.

We promise to make sure that we are as open and as transparent as possible when it comes to this campaign. We love our community and we’ll do everything possible to do right by you and make sure that you’re kept in the loop about the progression of the project.
