We are a tightly-knit community of founders who've met each other through Columbia University. We want to keep our community small but do occasionally take in exceptional founders who we think we can help succeed and are willing to pay it forward when they do. To preserve the integrity of our community, we take in new members only by invitation or through our selective application process.

Our Origin

We came together as a result of a Top 100 Columbia startup competition that was organized in 2019 and 2020. We arrived to a conclusion that most of our problems are so particular that the best person to help navigate through them is a fellow founder, or even better, a hundred of them.

Our Identity

Our community brings together smart, creative, like-minded people with a bias towards action. You could describe us as a collective support system built for founders by founders. Besides peer support, we can connect you with trusted investors, help find talent, and provide a true sense of community.


Circle of Trust

We work with a trusted network of alumni investors and corporate partners. We carefully vet the investors and potential partners that we introduce to our community. If you're an investor and would like to introduce yourself to our founders, please contact us through our existing members.
