Founder Secrets Tour

We are launching an in-person series

I launched Founder Secrets because I firmly believe that learning from the world's best founders is extremely powerful. However, some things don’t always get shared publicly on podcasts.

That’s why my colleague (and recovering founder, as he calls himself!) Serg Rodenzuela decided to start a more intimate in-person series with some of the top entrepreneurs in the US.

He says, “When I went through Techstars Chicago in 2020, I realized the power of having an experienced founder share their ups and downs off the record. This created an intimate environment where founders shared things that don’t always get written about in books or shared in podcasts.

I am taking the Founder Stories model and replicating it to expand access to key insights for more startup founders, not just Techstars and YC.

As part of this series, I will be interviewing some of the most compelling founders from the US, in person, and completely off the record. Although some pictures before and after might be okay, recording these sessions in any way will be strictly forbidden.”

This year we plan to share 15 founder stories from 10 ecosystems including San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Austin, Boston, Atlanta, Detroit, Boulder, Miami, and Los Angeles.

Due to the nature of this event, we will make it free and highly curated.

Our first event features a $300M exited founder, and best-selling author, Andy Dunn.

This will be an intimate group of founders hosted at Soho House Chicago, on Wednesday, February 28th at 5:30pm CT.

To secure your spot on the guest list, you can sign up here (there is limited capacity and those approved will be carefully selected from the RSVP list.)

This is a truly unique opportunity to learn from some of the world’s best entrepreneurs and meet some incredible founders.

I really hope you’ll enjoy the series!
