In partnership with Reckitt
Our Home & Hygiene sector is backed by CPG giant, Reckitt, the global player behind everyday household staples such as Vanish, Finish, AirWick, Nurofen, Dettol, Durex and Veet.
A fast-track for talented entrepreneurs advancing hygiene, health and nutrition
A 12-month program for entrepreneurs
We’ve spent years perfecting a platform that shortcuts - and de-risks - building a business from scratch. We support individuals wanting to turn entrepreneurial ideas into venture-backable businesses by providing capital, expert operational support, and the scale of our partners.
Capital to build the product and get to market
You'll receive initial funding to validate your idea and build out the product, and an additional £150k investment once we've proven the concept and you're ready to launch.
Together with an expert team
Together we will validate ideas, build the MVP, and test, iterate, and acquire your first customers. After 6-months of building confidence around a proof-of-concept, we will help you accelerate your launch through our accelerator program.
We're your team of functional experts
We're your team of industry experts, investors and entrepreneurs, and we're ready to work with you from day one.

Here's who you could be working with at Reckitt
From C-Suite innovation leaders, to specialists in any given area.
A unique opportunity to build a business from scratch, with almost zero risk
If you have an idea for a venture that is advancing the home and hygiene space, apply to join us.
You may be wondering…
Typically, a venture studio turns ideas that are sourced and vetted within the organisation, into venture-backable businesses - hiring a CEO and founding team when the time is right. At Founders Factory, we believe some of the best ideas come from entrepreneurs and real-life experiences, so we welcome entrepreneurs to apply to join our studio to build a business with us, right from the beginning.
That means that together we will validate your idea, build out the MVP, test, iterate and acquire your first customers. And when you're ready, we'll help you accelerate your launch and hire your founding team.
We're looking for ambitious entrepreneurs who want to use technology to make a big impact. If you have an idea but haven't yet built the product or MVP, now's the right time.
If you don't have an existing idea, take a look at our careers page to run a concept we're already working on. If you already have a product in market and early traction, take a look at our startup accelerator.
The high level offer from our Studio Program is a 6 month build program (including a £50k salary and a dedicated operations team), followed by a £150,000 investment and a 6 month accelerator program.
Each new venture will be supported by a dedicated studio team. Our skill sets include product, design, talent, data science, engineering, growth, fundraising, and corporate partnerships.
Until the business is incorporated, we'll give you an employment contract with Founders Factory.
On average our founders pay themselves no more than £50k. Your own salary is part of the budget and subsequent funding.
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 we can help with.
Founders Factory will provide office space, alongside other companies participating in the program. Here you'll be a part of the FF community, with events and other perks available. For the full duration of the Studio Program, we can offer up to 4 desks if needed full time and otherwise hot desks are available for your team. Further seats are available at cost or at the discretion of Founders Factory.
