What brands are saying
“The turnout was so positive! The curation was great and we got a lot of positive attention and sales from the attendees. It gave us a great opportunity to educate and build our community. [We even discussed] a possible partnership with FlyWheel.”
Bumble & Bumble
“Foundermade offers a forum for connections to be made and for ideas to be produced. Budding Entrepreneurs can connect to Veterans such as myself whom I think they can learn so much from. The collaboration possibilities and the exposure for some of these young founders makes these events invaluable."
"From FounderMade I was able to create a deeper connection with other founders and suppliers in my industry such as Livio Bisterzo, founder of Hippeas, and Tero, founder of Four Sigmatic. FounderMade fostered an unparalleled platform and community from which I was able to strengthen these connections."
"This event has been an really amazing networking opportunity. We sold out of all of our products. There has been an amazing response to our brand, we lined up ten different partnership opportunities as well as I met some potential investors."
"The Foundermade events are expertly curated across audience and speakers to bring together the driving forces in the wellness industry. I even met a senior hire for my company at one of their events!"
"Even several weeks after at other locations and other events, I met people who had met me and seen Juicero at the FounderMade event. Many hundreds of people got to taste and experience Juicero and we received 30 corporate leads.”
"Our expectations were far exceeded and we were completely blown away by the caliber of event, attendees, and value we got from being a part of it. Some of the highlights included garnering significant interest from serious investors (we had 4 qualified pitches within a week of the event), media interest (magazine interviews came directly as a result of being at the event), we sold a ton of product at the Discovery Lounge, and we secured a prominent new member of our advisory board; Michael Gordon, founder of Bumble & Bumble."
"We participated in FounderMade Wellness 2016 and met an amazing brand consultant. After working closely together and understanding our brand more closely, she became a partner. We are now putting together a strong strategy to scale FaceLove with our first free standing store along with 2 other shop in shops to open fall of 2017. Essentially taking us from being a $40k a year facial pop up service to a $2 million brand sitting next to Dry Bars and Soul Cycle."
“I was able to connect the brand with the thought leaders in the industry from media, distribution and investment communities, including a buyer at Whole Foods & a representative at Well & Good. I loved that FounderMade took a fragmented process and made it streamlined.”
"I’ve been presented with business opportunities from corporations like L’Oréal & just secured investment with UniLever because of LXMI’s presence with FounderMade."
"It's been a great time connecting with some really relevant people in the wellness space and discovering some really cool concepts."
"What I really like about FounderMade is that it really captures the growth in the wellness industry. We’ve meet some great brands to do cross promotions with, and now we are excited about doing fitness events with Hudson Wellness. We get so many contacts out of it."
What the press are saying
"FounderMade attracts founders by offering support services, mentorship from veterans, a pitch competition and access to capital. This founder-focused model then attracts the big companies who have a keen interest in gaining visibility into a world that corporates would never normally have access to. "
