Entrepreneur First is a highly selective, 3-month long programme run in 6 cities across the globe. We bring together the few individuals with the potential to found globally important technology companies, to meet their co-founder and build startups from scratch.
We were founded on the belief that the world is missing out on some of its best founders. In particular, we believe this is because the best companies come from co-founding partnerships – but finding the right person in your existing network can be hugely challenging. In fact, it’s a matter of pure luck.
We exist to change that. We embed the most ambitious and driven people in a curated community to find their ideal co-founders, fast.
Alongside that, we give them access to leading advisors, the opportunity to pitch for pre-seed funding from us, and a network of the world’s best investors to break down the barriers to founding, and move fast.
Entrepreneur First’s unique model brings together the people who should be co-founders, to create impactful companies that otherwise wouldn’t exist.
Companies founded through our platform include Tractable (Computer Vision, currently valued at $1B as of June 2021), Magic Pony Technology (AI, acquired by Twitter for a reported $150m), Represent (social commerce, acquired by CustomInk), BloomsburyAI (acquired by Facebook), Cleo (fintech), Open Cosmos (space), CloudNC (manufacturing), Transcelestial (satellite communications) and many more.
