Founders plays an important role in Fort Wayne’s entrepreneur, creative, and startup communities. The ability to freely use a table space at Founders is especially important to encourage younger people just starting out, unfunded startups bootstrapping their ventures, and others who cannot afford even small office rent and a long term lease.
If we were to disenfranchise those starting out, our community would seem flat in comparison. They enrich our community. They bring ideas, creativity, collaboration. They form relationships. They form new teams. They spin off new collaborative ventures together.
You can help us maintain a vibrant community that is open to all. You can help grow the Fort Wayne startup community to the same stature seen today in places like Austin and Boulder. As you watch Fort Wayne grow, you’ll know that you are a part of that growth.
