Founded by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, Founders Future invests financial and human capital in tech and digital startups. As a mission-driven company, we contribute to the development of an ambitious and responsible entrepreneurship in order to anticipate the future challenges of our society. In our business, we are determined to generate a positive impact in social, societal and environmental terms. Our purpose? To capture the major changes in our society, to identify the best entrepreneurs and to guide them in turning their vision into reality. In a word, we build the business models of the future together and help structure their foundations. To achieve this, we are guided by four values: commitment, conviction, diligence and audacity. Co-constructing the companies of the future takes time. Respectful of entrepreneurial initiative, we therefore consider our relationships with founders to be long-term. We prepare them, guide them and advise them in difficult times as well as in more serene ones. We team up with them and that is our greatest pride!
