Super excited to be a part of the Founder Gym team and really honored! I recently became a Design Fellow for a really awesome startup based in Oakland. But everything is done remotely and this was their first event that was held in San Francisco at Galvanize just this last Friday, May 11th. I helped out with interviewing founders that have gone through the training and helped film their video testimonials during the event. Really excited that I can help a startup that wants to create social good by empowering founders of companies the right tools and resources to help them fundraise. Its such a great community of tech entrepreneurs and founders who have great ideas for great companies and products.
There’s already so much work that goes into creating a business and finding the right resources do take time, energy and tons of research, I’m so glad that Founder Gym exists so that they can close that gap on underrepresented tech founders. I think the best part is community and learning from our mistakes, hearing others talk about what they went through and why they are super passionate about their dreams is so inspiring.
I also helped out with designing the attendees badges and as a fun spin designed them like player cards in keeping with the Gym metaphor on training founders.
I’m truly thankful for the event because we got to hear some great stories from the founders side who’ve been in the game for a while and also from venture capitalists side and hearing some of the information they provided was very enlightening!
If you or someone you know is a founder who wants to apply to become a cohort, they can apply to the FG Cohort 3, deadline is Sunday May 20th.
Filming with our crew on video testimonials for Founders sharing their experiences.
Love this poster of everyone’s name on it! Shared experiences and growing together through a process helps us all succeed! =) Teamwork makes the dream work!
