why guild of founders?

Fund raising for founders is hard and lonely journey. There is a lot of education material available but there is no "on-the ground" practical support for founders  as they go through the journey. Guild of founders supports founders to engage with investors.

COVID has created few challenges and few opportunities. Leverage digital collaboration opportunities.
