The aim of Founders Day is to help you navigate your company in its current stage, and to prepare you for the next. We believe that supporting today’s early-stage companies strengthens the Texas startup ecosystem as a whole.

The workshop sessions are led by our team, other service providers, and experienced entrepreneurs who are passionate about giving back to the startup community. The workshops will cover topics such as valuations, typical seed terms, granting equity, hiring and firing employees, board control, scaling your business, and more.
