09 Feb Day 1: Welcoming the Spring 2015 Teams!
“It’s not a program – it’s a process.”
Today is the first day of a 12-week process. The 7 startups within the 7th cohort have arrived and moved in. Following introductions over lunch, the teams jumped right into elevator pitches and value propositions.
We’re pumped for the rest of this jam-packed week! A schedule of talks, meet-ups and meals has been created in the hopes of acquainting this cohort with the fast-paced nature of FounderFuel. These events will be a chance to connect each of the seven teams to all networks now available to them: the FounderFuel/Real Ventures team, Alumni, Mentors and Partners.
Check out some of the snippets overheard today:
“We’ve been waiting for this for months.”
“Those that do the best at FounderFuel are those that are looking for other people to help them.”
“So none of you have gotten it right today, but that’s okay, that’s why you’re here.”
“Perspective comes from two things: (1) periodically disconnecting from your business to focus on the concept of business itself, and (2) constant, unambiguous feedback.”
We’ve only just begun the process of fostering greatness, and we’ll be keeping you up-to date every step of the way.
