Opportunities we're most excited by

The new conscious consumer

Brands find themselves under incredible scrutiny, particularly when it comes to claims of environmental and social responsibility. We are looking for new ventures that can help deliver trust across the entire value chain.

Wellbeing in the home

The world has been spending a lot of time indoors, and the importance of the home environment - with its impact on our mood and sense of wellbeing - has never been clearer. We are looking for new products and services that help home dwellers make the best of their space by elevating their environment and living as comfortably and conveniently as possible.

Changing urban environments

If we no longer need to be in the office on a regular basis, and no longer need to live close to our workplace, then the shift towards urban areas is likely to slow - and could even reverse. This will have a big impact on working and living environments and practices.

eCommerce enablers

Consumer habits are changing rapidly and, in many cases, permanently as the need to stay at home and avoid physical contact makes e-commerce necessary - and ubiquitous. This provides an opportunity to help e-commerce brands and businesses invent, build, grow and go to market.

Heightening hygiene

Human beings are more conscious about hygiene and associated habits than at any time in the last 100 years. This heightened awareness extends to every element of our lives - from home to public spaces through to work and the vehicles in which we travel in to get there.

Home & Hygiene Success Stories

Dr Kyle Grant and Tom de Wilton, Co-founders

"Founders Factory's accelerator turned out to be a real leg-up for our business. We received mentorship from some of the best minds at Reckitt Benckiser (RB), and we're soon to launch a game-changing partnership with one of their household brands.

Not to mention how Founders Factory equipped us with the skills and know-how to scale our business into two new cities and hire our first team. "
