Having early stage founder struggles? Call 1-888-890-2656 toll-free to talk about anything — that’s right — anything, with experienced builders and founders who were in your exact shoes just a few years ago.
but why?
Millions of first-time founders often struggle quietly with difficult, vulnerable challenges. Say goodbye to the days of not being able to tap into the vast knowledge and insights out there because you don’t have access to the right people or the network.
welcome to
the founder hotline
Simply call us for free on “The Founder Hotline” on Tue and Thu at 11am-12pm EST all through the months of August and September, 2022. This is the place to ask the raw, vulnerable, authentic questions that you would not bring up in a typical AMA.

The calls will be broadcasted LIVE so other listeners can find value in it too. You can call in anonymously or choose to identify yourself.

If you can't wait for the next LIVE broadcast, email us anytime and we will reply promptly.
