A community of the most promising entrepreneurial talent in technology


Launched in the UK by Founders Forum at 10 Downing Street in March 2016, Founders of the Future’s mission is to build a world-class pool of diverse and exceptional entrepreneurial talent who will build tomorrow’s high impact sustainable startups. Our programmes, events and tools help talented individuals who are not currently founders in every steps of their journey to become tech founders.

Founders of the Future was launched by Founders Forum, a private network of the world’s leading digital and technology entrepreneurs started by Brent Hoberman (Lastminute.com/made.com) and Jonnie Goodwin (Lepe partners).

Nothing Found

A Unique Selection Process

Our process leverages the power of the Founders Forum network with some nominations from top founders and Peer Recommendations (from current members and a network of partner organisations that we’ve built). We are looking for individuals who possess the unique coupling of capabilities - visionary and charismatic; lateral thinkers with clear evidence they can execute consistently; exceptional analytics; ability to deal with huge uncertainty and evidence of overcoming real adversity
