ABOUT HIDDEN FOUNDERS
Hidden Founders is a mashup of development skills and startup experience in an accelerated, bootstrap-friendly leasing package.
They help founders build an MVP (web or mobile product) and rapidly get it to market to test their hypotheses at minimum cost. They do so with a tailored leasing contract: founders can start work on their project with a 14% down payment, while the remaining sum is spread over 18 monthly installments. After six months, founders can opt to cancel their lease with no questions asked and all further payments forgiven. To keep the founders’ cash investments low, Hidden Founders asks for a 3% stake in each startup.
They work with a select group of no more than 14 startups per batch and are completely invested in the projects they take on. While building the product is their main focus, they also assist first-time founders by connecting them with mentors and offering business assistance during office hours.
