10PAGE
FOUNDR IS A
BOOTSTRAPPED
BUSINESS.
We intentionally built our company this way
because we wanted to grow controllably
and sustainably, without the pressure of
providing investors with a return or extrinsic
forces flipping the company for quick cash.
It also means that we are all too aware of the
entrepreneurial journey, we know your aches
and pains when building from the ground
up, and it’s our experience that allows us
to be industry leaders in entrepreneurial
education

WE DO OUR BEST WORK
We aim to be the best in the world.
We leave our ego at the door and do
our best work.
The best idea can come from
anyone, in any team. We listen and
respect everyone’s ideas, and we
choose the strongest idea.
We take extreme ownership. We
do what we say we will do, no
exceptions
We take pride in our work and aim
to do the best work of our careers at
Foundr
We come from a wide variety of
backgrounds and belief-sets, but
when we work at Foundr don’t allow
our personal agendas to influence
our work
We each establish a growth mindset,
and we seek to challenge our beliefs
and preconceived views on what is
possible.

social events

WHAT WE DO WHAT WE DON’T DO
99.9% OF OUR CONTENT
IS FREE. OUR KNOWLEDGE
COMES IN A VARIETY OF
MEDIUMS: ARTICLES,
PODCASTS, VIDEOS, AND
MORE.
THE .1% PAID CONTENT
INCLUDES OUR ONLINE
COURSES, BOOKS, AND OUR
MAGAZINE.
We will never be
bought out, we will
never promote or
feature someone for
payment, and we will
never cross-promote
another product for
quick cash
We will at all costs
protect the equity
within the Foundr
brand that we have
worked hard to build
We will not publish content for the sake of it. If it
doesn’t change lives, we don’t ship it. We listen to
our audience and adapt and improve our content
accordingly
WE WILL NOT SACRIFICE THE QUALITY
OF THE FOUNDR BRAND AT ANY COST
WHATSOEVER.
PUBLISH OR RELEASE CONTENT THAT IS
SUB-PAR OR WON’T STAND THE TEST OF
TIME
17PAGE
WHO WE PARTNER
WITH AT FOUNDR
REAL ENTREPRENEURS
INNOVATIVE OR
MARKET LEADERS
BUILDING A LEGACY
We only interview real founders with proven
experience in building a business. Not
someone “playing business” with a rented
Lambo on a maxed-out credit card.
The people who we feature have companies that are ranked in the top 3 brands within their
own niche or industry. They’ve been out on the front lines and have the battle scars (and stories)
to prove it.
We don’t require fame, but we insist that
their products, services, or brands have
impacted millions.
We speak with people who’ve sacrificed
to master skills, have built something from
scratch, and have the proof to back it up.
Above all, they must have a burning desire to
help other entrepreneurs succeed and want
to give back to the community.
18PAGE
WHO WE DON’T
PARTNER WITH
THESE ARE OUR POLICIES WHEN
CREATING ANY PRODUCT. WHETHER
IT’S THE ENTREPRENEURS
FEATURED ON THE FRONT COVER
OF OUR MAGAZINE, OUR COURSE
INSTRUCTORS, OR THE GUESTS WE
FEATURE ON OUR PODCASTS, WE
WILL ONLY WORK WITH THE BEST
ENTREPRENEURS IN THE WORLD.
	→ No get-rich-quick scammers, mystical gurus, snake-oil 	
	 salespeople, or pyramid schemes
	→ No pointless articles or listicles with no substance
	→ People who try to slide us money under the desk for 	
	promotion
	→ Shotgun content and scattered audience
19PAGE
IF YOU STAY WITH US LONG ENOUGH
AT FOUNDR, YOU WILL DO THE BEST
WORK OF YOUR CAREER –
THAT WE GUARANTEE.
JOINING
THE TEAM
20PAGE
But here at Foundr, we are loud and proud about being 100% an
entrepreneurial bootstrapped start-up that supports other growing start-
ups. That’s what makes us legit in the entrepreneurial space.
THIS IS WHERE COMPANIES
USUALLY INCLUDE A
PARAGRAPH STATING THAT
THEY’RE “NOT LIKE OTHER
START-UPS” BECAUSE
THEY DON’T HAVE A
PING-PONG TABLE.
21PAGE
	→ The usual speedy and purposeful meetings, open-door
policies, and a focus on self-development
	→ No-clocking in and no forced all-nighters
	→ We discourage office hierarchy and refuse to enforce
uncomfortable office attire
	→ Giant in-office murals and tonnes of natural light
	→ The cherry on top of our stereotypical start-up office: a
ping-pong table in the staff room
LIKE ANY GOOD
STEREOTYPICAL
STARTUP, OUR
OFFICE HAS:
22PAGE
ASIDE FROM THE TANGIBLE, THE BIGGEST
SELLING POINT FOR US TO CONVINCE YOU TO
COME TO JOIN US IS OUR STELLAR CULTURE.
OUR CULTURE
We believe that the perfect culture consists
of a dream team that is united in their pursuit
of ambitious goals and dreams.
WHAT MAKES US GREAT,
WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE,
AND WHAT MAKES US
INDESTRUCTIBLE IS
23PAGE
COMMUNICATION
EDUCATION
HAVE EACH OTHER’S BACKS
OUR
COMPANY
CULTURE
24PAGE
	→ Always address the elephant in the room
	→ Respectfully question and challenge any assumptions
	→ Transparent culture is best. Everyone should know what’s 		
	 working and what’s not working from the ground up
	→ Meetings vs. Discussions: we prefer giving you the freedom to 		
	 choose the best method of communication for the situation. 		
	 Strict rules only lead to stifled workplaces.
	→ No dream is too big, but the devil is in the details.
	→ Ask, ask, ask, and then ask some more. And then if you’re still not 	
	 100% sure, ask again. (Remember, we love and value curiosity.)
WE INSIST ON OPEN,
CLEAR, HONEST
COMMUNICATION
INSIDE AND OUTSIDE
THE OFFICE
COMMUNICATION
25PAGE
EDUCATION
WE ARE AN EDUCATION
COMPANY, AND WE PRACTICE
WHAT WE PREACH. ONE OF
OUR KEY VALUES IS “LEARN
AND BE CURIOUS”, AND
WE TAKE TRAINING VERY
SERIOUSLY.

	→ Every employee is given a generous budget to spend on	
	self-education
	→ We want you to upgrade yourself in your role, and we are	
	 here to do all we can to help you level up
	→ If anyone in our team is faced with a roadblock we can’t 	
	 solve, we regularly bring in domain experts for various 	
	 fields, paid consultants, advisors, and mentors to help us 	
	 solve it together
	→ We learn from our mistakes, we learn from our wins, and 	
	 we learn from others
26PAGE
HAVE EACH
OTHER’S BACK
	→ Our products are only as good as our people
	→ Support for one another is our credence
	→ Embrace other’s dreams and goals
	→ Support mental health and wellbeing. We
want you to choose a healthy work/play/rest 		
balance
OUR COMPANY MISSION
IS TO SUPPORT OTHERS,
AND WE EMBODY THIS
IN OUR OFFICE, TOO
27PAGE
HIRING	
OUR HIRING PROCESS TAKES
LONGER THAN OTHERS
BECAUSE WE ARE HIGHLY
SELECTIVE ABOUT WHO WE
BRING INTO OUR TEAM
	→ We do not take hiring lightly, and we always 		
	 seek to add superstars to our super-team
	→ We take care of our team, and that’s why no 		
	 one ever wants to leave
28PAGE
THE PROOF IS
IN THE PUDDING
ACCORDING TO A 2016 STUDY,
WITHIN ALL INDUSTRIES, THE
AVERAGE TOTAL ANNUAL
STAFF TURNOVER IS
WE ARE
PROUDLY AT
17.8%
1%ANNUALY

members working

variety of different
timezones
30PAGE
WHO THRIVES
AT FOUNDR

PROACTIVE DOERS
NO EGOS
	→ We don’t micromanage.
Micromanaging doesn’t teach you how
to make decisions or think for yourself
	→ We are not a fancy day spa that caters
to inflated egos. We support humility,
no-ego decision-making, and from-
the-heart honesty
THOSE WHO SUPPORT OTHERS
	→ Not only for the customer but for your 			
fellow coworkers.
	→ We encourage autonomy in the 	
workplace so that you can get the job
done
	→ Entrepreneurship is something 	
close to our hearts, and if you love to
chat entrepreneurs, self-development,
and start-ups then you’ll fit right in
	→ One of our key values is “learn and
be curious” and we take training very
seriously
THOSE WHO ENJOY THE FREEDOM
TO WORK AS THEY DO
CURIOSITY CATS AND
LEARNING-ADDICTS
THOSE WHO LOVE THE
ENTREPRENEURIAL SPACE
FOUNDR’S
FUTURE

They’ve been out on the front lines and have the battle scars (and stories) to prove it. We don’t require fame, but we insist that their products, services, or brands have impacted millions. We speak with people who’ve sacrificed to master skills, have built something from scratch, and have the proof to back it up. Above all, they must have a burning desire to help other entrepreneurs succeed and want to give back to the community.
