We’re very proud to break these news to you today. After all the hard work we invested in Founder2be so far, building a platform to bring startup co-founders together, to bring YOU together, we have reached another important milestone!
All Founder2be members together could invest $30,000,000+ in total. And counting.
This is a lot of money people are willing to invest into their dream-startups, a lot of money YOU are willing to invest into the startups YOU want to build together with co-founders you find on Founder2be.
And we reached this milestone only a bit more than 3 months after we reached the $20,000,000+ milestone back in December 2011.
We’re insanely happy that we are the tool startup co-founders choose to turn their ideas into reality. We’re insanely happy that YOU choose us!
Thank you, thank you, thank you! :)

What would you do if your start-up raised 20 million right out of the gates? As awesome as it sounds, it would probably lead anyone with that kind of money from day one right down the wrong path. Why? Because focus isn’t such a bad thing when it comes to starting up. Or that’s our theory anyways. Best to raise as much cash as you think you need to get to the next point (best to make it a bit more because things always take longer than expected and cost more than thought) at which you will have increased the value of your venture and thus be able to raise the next round at a better valuation. But that’s not what this post is about. It’s about $20,000,000!!
It still sounds like a pretty cool figure, doesn’t it? It would actually take up a lot of space to even store. Check out our post from May for what a single million dollars look like. And now think times twenty. Would that fit in your garage or office or wherever you are working on your venture? Probably not. It wouldn’t fit in mine. It sure would afford a lot of stuff though: 20,000 laptops or 400 hires or 2 million pizzas to code through the nights or 20 million cans of coke or… OK. I’m getting slightly carried away here.
Well, there is a reason we are talking about this today: Founder2be surpassed the $20 million mark of co-founder funding: the total capital available from co-founders to co-founders with the right idea and the right team. That is enough to start a lot of startups! :) So, if you find one or two co-founders on Founder2be, there is a good chance, you’ll actually have quite a bit of cash on hand to go a long way towards starting to full-fill your entrepreneurial dreams.
Find a co-founder. Start or join a start-up. What are you waiting for?
