The Founders Peak

A global platform for entrepreneurial wisdom 


A platform for global entrepreneurial wisdom.  An initiative is designed to celebrate Founders and their journey and experiences - a cathartic experience in which speakers have the opportunity to share a purposeful story with the world and one that we hope will inspire the next wave of entrepreneurs, leaders and society at large.  



Globally, about 90% of startups fail. Despite the fact that they are the engine of economic growth. They are the source of new jobs, new products, and new services. They drive innovation and create wealth.The Founders Peak aims to improve startup success rates.
