Pioneering feats have always been supported by pioneering teams, whether its scaling Everest or landing on the Moon. Yet very little support is provided to pioneering Founders. Many offerings help Founders develop innovative ideas and business models but nothing exists to prepare founders for the treacherous journey ahead. Until now. We are The Founder Lab. Built by Founders for Founders, we develop winning capacity and capability to de-risk ventures and improve the odds of achieving those pioneering feats.
We are a team of serial founders with private and public exits to boot. We started as pirates in Corporates but that was never the long game. We have made more mistakes than most so that you dont have to. With over 10 years experience across more than 300 startups we have what it takes to build the next investable Founder.
Our unique Founder development method, venture development IP, knowhow and networks run deep and are trusted by some of the best investors and startup programs across Australia. However our key uniqueness comes from caring deeply about building better humans because they make better Founders who in turn build better businesses. This mitigates risks in startup portfolios and increases returns for both founders and investors
"I’ve always believed that emotional and intellectual fortitude are the two critical factors to any successful founder. I’ve always felt that there was a gap in the education around entrepreneurship when it comes to readying founders for the emotional challenges that we face day to day. You can find research for days when it comes to start-up processes but never for founder readiness. The Founder Fitness bootcamp takes an emotional approach to preparing founders for high highs and the low lows of building great companies. I took this bootcamp for myself and am now sending the CEO of my first business to the next session. Incredible insight from battle-tested founders who have been there before."
"The Founder Lab was a great bootcamp. The application of stoicism to business situations and challenges is valuable and will certainly influence my thought process moving forward. Con and Jamie are incredibly experienced and provide valuable insights into the challenges and opportunities that come with being a founder."
"Constantine and Jamie have created an experience where founders, the key foundation of all startups, can get the support they need to build robust, scalable businesses - and survive with their souls in the process."
"The Founder Lab did a great job at picking up on my blind spots, in spite of my prior assurance they didn’t exist. I went into the session a sceptic but left, surprisingly, more self-aware - no easy feat!"
Whether you are an experienced founder or just starting out, you can always improve. Our structured approach to Founder Fitness means that you will build your capacity in order to make it to the finish line.
