🚀 Founder Corner: Therapy for Founders
Take risks, hustle hard, go to therapy.
As a startup founder, your well being is essential to your ability to lead and succeed. Founder Corner is an online therapy community specially designed for ambitious founders who want to perform at their best.
⚾ The Elevator Pitch:
You don't need to be a mental health professional to know that startups are a tough mental game.Hiring, firing, fundraising, closing deals, losing customers - all be quite stressful. But more than that, founders need to understand how they make decisions and the subconscious biases that affect their performance.
That's why Founder Corner was founded: a founder's space to explore how their mind works. They pair founders with top therapists specialized in working with ambitious founders, so founders can explore how to gain ambition, performance, and clarity — all without the fear of what their investors, employees, and family might think. This proactive therapy helps founders uncover their strengths, harness the insights of their emotions, ask the right questions, and unlock their true potential.

🔍 Why we like
👏🏽 Identified a niche that needs this: Founders
Founder Corner approached their service very systematically by targeting a small, and targeted niche - founders. Founders are amongst the most strained communities out there. The sheer amount of responsibilities and 'hat juggling' that needs to happen makes this role stressful. By offering a service, specifically catered for founders, Founder Corner became the hub for founder mental wellness. This focus will prove vital going forward.
📈 Community led growth by a veteran
Founder Corner's growth is heavily organic - they partner with therapists looking to enable future leaders with founders who are building the future. This symbiosis becomes more-or-less a self fulfilling prophecy. Additionally, the founder Gaurav, was an operator himself in a past life as high growth companies like Instacart and founded his own YC Startup. He knows the ins-and-outs of founder stressors and is building this community he is so close with.
