Founders Wanted is reinventing how startups form
Startup formation needs to evolve
At FW we’re not arrogant and we don’t have an agonizing process. We’re objective. We’re a team of experienced entrepreneurs and inventors who know how to go from concept to production. We’ve scaled companies and taken them public. We want to work with the best IP and most talented people to build high-growth technology companies.
Founders Wanted brings value to Inventors
FW is built on the premise that companies have exponentially larger value than patents alone. When we build a company around intellectual property, we turn patented ideas into companies—bringing greater value to inventors of all stripes.
Founders Wanted brings value to Founders
FW is also built on the premise that patents can provide a unique protective service to a startup. Having a built-in moat from the get-go, the Founder will have less competitive risk, can more easily raise money, and can create more value than running with an idea that can be easily copied.
Founders Wanted acts as a Matchmaker.
At FW, we find business-ready patents and match them with qualified founders. The patents portfolio is carefully curated and considers market timing, technical feasibility, and capital requirements. Founders must be passionate, top-of-their-field, and able to recruit a team and build an enterprise.
Founders Wanted acts as an Accelerant
When needed, FW offers additional services to help get a company off the roundly quickly. These include offering pre-drafted corporate docs, technical and business assistance, and help in forming an advisory board. And when needed, FW can provide early pre-seed capital.
