21 Aug The Countdown is On!
Teams have been chosen, offer letters have been extended, and welcome emails have been sent – the FounderFuel Fall 2015 cohort is just around the corner. We’re extremely excited to be welcoming a whole new batch of entrepreneurs, and we can’t wait to see where they’ll be in just four short months.
A note to founders entering the program: we once had a CEO describe the four month process as amazingly difficult and insanely incredible all at the same time. It will be incredible; we hope that you learn more about yourself, about working with others, and about building a business in a shorter period of time then you thought possible. But it will also involve struggle (as it always does). Ben Horowitz put in best when he wrote:
“The struggle is when you wonder why you started the company in the first place.
The struggle is when people ask you why you don’t quit and you don’t know the answer.
The struggle is when your employees think you are lying and you think they may be right.
The struggle is when food loses taste…
The struggle is not failure, but it causes failure…
The struggle is where greatness comes from.”
So here’s to your impending greatness, and whatever must happen for you to get there. We hope you’re ready.
Be sure to stay tuned for all events, articles and announcements – what we do would be vastly different without the MTL and wider Canadian community on this ride with us.
See you soon,
– The FounderFuel Crew
