Pavlo & Sam, Co-founders
"The Founders Factory accelerator helped us launch our product in the market, and provided outstanding support with performance and lifecycle marketing. The team also helped us develop our investor story and made some important introductions to angels and funds. The approach of Founders Factory is bespoke to each startup, and we highly recommend the experience to Founders looking to make an impact. "

We're looking for founders with a product in market and early traction, typically at pre-seed to seed-stage in funding. If you are at that stage and are ready to leverage our network and expert team, now's the right time.
We support growth-driven companies by bringing together capital, expert operational support, and the scale of our corporate partners, not to mention our wider network of international brands, investors and fellow founders.
Our 6-month accelerator program is completely bespoke - the support you receive will depend on your startup's needs and growth objectives.
Find out more about startup accelerators and the difference between a startup accelerator versus an incubator.
The Founders Factory Team: We provide hands-on support across strategy, fundraising, ops, bizdev, product, design, tech, growth, PR, brand, and talent. Think of us as the senior team you couldn't afford to hire.
Our partners: You will unlock significant value from the corporate partner associated with your sector. Depending on your company and its needs, support could range from distribution, pilots, commercial partnerships, product validation, investment and more.
Our network: You will have access to our global network of partners, investors and fellow founders for life.
In our startup accelerator in London, we'll build you a 6-month bespoke program, invest capital (amount depending on the sector) and take 3%-7% equity, depending on your startup’s current valuation.
We're currently investing in startups across FinTech, Health, Home, and Psychedelics/Mental Health. We're launching more sectors soon.
Ours definitely is. We are 100% committed to helping you succeed, and our commitment doesn't stop once the program ends. See what our founders have to say.
When it comes to product, we believe that short term development resource is unsustainable. We'll work with you on your architecture, will help you review code, and will coach your team to deliver a better product. All of which will give you learnings you can take with you after the program.
While formal meetings will pause, you'll continue to leverage our global alumni network and knowledge. The Founders Factory network extends across 100+ corporates, investors across different stages, geographies and sectors, and a strong community of fellow founders.
At the very least, we'll help you build relationships with individuals within our partner's organisations, but there is no guarantee of a partnership materialising during the 6-month program. We’re proud of our record so far, but on both sides, people, strategy and objectives can change so it’s not something we can guarantee.
They don't. If a partnership forms with one of our corporate partners, it will be governed by the usual pilot or contract agreements between you and them all of which our team can help with.
