Founders Cafe is a virtual co-working space for founders who are building their own startups.
It costs $50 per month. The membership gives you access to a co-working space that's open 24/7, so people from all time zones can join. Currently, the community has 70 members from all over the world.
The co-working space is a great place to focus and work. You will find students of Standford, YC, Harvard, etc., building startups. Members mostly communicate via chat in the co-working space, sharing goals, to-do lists, and accomplishments. This helps members maintain accountability and keep the motivation intact. Also, you will get to know members over time, their journey, what their struggles are, and what they are working in.
This will inevitably lend to friendships with some of the most like-minded people, as well as professional connections that can be valuable for your career.
Founders Cafe works on Jitsi Meet. This is the platform they use for the co-working space and for community events. These events are at 8:30 am PT. Maddie, founder of Founders Cafe, will record these meetings or schedule extra meetings if some members can't make it at that time. Lastly, if you are in the United States you will be able to join occasional in-person meetups.
Join a community full of students and founders:
Founders Cafe has 70 members from all over the world, all of which are either students, or founders, or both. You will find like-minded people to share your projects and ambitions with.
Get the accountability you need to skyrocket your growth:
Solo-founding can be isolating. This supportive community will keep you accountable for your goals and maintain your motivation.
Network and develop lifelong friendships:
Showing up every day and seeing familiar faces over time will result in friendships and key professional connections. Get to know university students and entrepreneurs building their own projects.
Members regularly meet via video calls to work or study. In this coworking space, the chat is the main communication tool. People generally stay muted and everyone concentrates on the tasks at hand. Members share their goals and to-do lists at these meetings, so it's an excellent place to find some accountability. This coworking space is open 24/7 so members of every time zone can join.
On the other hand, community events are held at 8:30 am PT. If there are members that can't do it at that time, Maddie (the community's founder) will record them or schedule extra meetings.
Founders Cafe's members interact on Jitsi Meet. Here the community has its coworking space and all its meetings. Through the platform, members talk in real-time and use the chat.
Over time and after many days of working together, teams members get to know each other and form lifelong friendships. Founders Cafe is also an excellent place to expand your professional network, getting to know founders in your area. For example, people in the United States occasionally meet up in person to hang out and network.
