How do we recognise potential founders?
Having started in London a decade ago, we have now worked with thousands of potential founders across Europe, Asia and North America.
In that time, we’ve learned to recognise world class founder potential before anyone else.
We’ve found that there are certain characteristics that make you more likely to succeed on our platform. That’s not to say that you can’t succeed as a founder without these characteristics – rather, having these characteristics makes you a good fit for EF specifically.
Our platform is best suited to a particular kind of founder who wants to build a particular kind of company. There are many different forms of entrepreneurship; from single person enterprises, to lifestyle businesses, to VC backed behemoths and everything in between.
At EF, we’re looking for people with the potential to found high growth, globally important technology companies – the type of company that would benefit from venture capital funding.
In most cases, these individuals could probably found decent companies without us, but we believe that they’ll be much more successful, and succeed at a faster pace, if they start their founder journey at Entrepreneur First, where they can meet a co-founder and join our network of founders, advisors and investors.
