Build a startup from scratch in our Venture Studio in London

We're investing in idea-stage founders looking to solve global problems using technology.

Entrepreneurs, tell us about your idea

A unique way to start a business, with reduced risk

A dedicated team of experts to take your product to market

You'll join our dedicated studio team to validate your idea and build out the product alongside a team of functional experts across product, tech, design, growth, brand, talent, finance and partnerships.

When you're ready, we will help you hire top talent to take you to the next stage.

Capital and a competitive founder salary

We invest £250k in two tranches alongside 12 months support, which includes joining our Accelerator when you are ready to scale.

You can draw a salary from this funding which means you don't need to worry about fundraising early on and can focus on building and getting to market.

Access to the world's most influential partners & network

Alongside our partners such as Reckitt, Aviva, and Nesta - Founders Factory and its sister organisations have built the largest technology ecosystem in Europe.

We will unlock significant value from our network of investors, partners and founders across geographies, and we'll help you to raise your next rounds of capital to rapidly scale.
