Curious about how we started? Read our story
As the famous saying goes, being a founder is an incredibly lonely process. The lack of funding is not the only reason most founders give up when they go through a rough patch; it's usually the lack of emotional support as well.

As a founder I sensed that and started building a community that exclusively exists for founders. Where founders of all stages can come together to share and access resources that are essential for them to build companies that solve real world problems and create jobs for the rest of the community. 

I am Yasmeen Butt a former psychologist and now Co-founder of Founders Village.

In the past 2 years we have built this community by hosting creative small and large gatherings for founders. We have connected over 13000 people and reached out to a larger community of approx. 100,000 startup founders all over America.

As a result of our events, hundreds of founders can get together in a fun setting, where friendships can be formed. Additionally, we partner with several funds and companies to introduce funding resources to our founders. Our support doesn't stop at our events. Whenever our founders need advice or introductions to potential investors or users,

I am personally happy to facilitate those introductions for them. If you're a founder, passionate about building a company or already running a company, I urge you to surround yourself with like-minded individuals. We work better that way :)

“I’ve been attending the Founders Night since it was just a couple dozen founders in a backyard around a fire pit, and immediately fell in love with the community.  As an investor and VC with operational experience, I loved the casual and grassroots environment with founders with no particular business context, just founders sharing interests and what they’re building.“

"Yasmeen and her team helped us throw an extremely engaging event!  They put together a live-streamed interactive fireside chat that was a huge success and professionally handled.  We were competing with some big events that evening from Google and Startup World Cup, TechCrunch, 500 Global - and we still had people show up with name tags from those events and end the evening with our event - which says a lot!  Founders Village is one of the most hyped communities and I have the pleasure to be a part of!  I highly recommend supporting this incredible community."
