What is FIND?

FIND is an intensive period of ideation and collaboration in person, in Paris. And it's free.

01

Prepare

Our online learning platform will open the week before the boot camp so that you can start to develop your founder mindset, and collect the frameworks you'll need for the bootcamp.

02

Meet likeminded individuals

On kick-off day you will get to meet your carefully selected cohort, which will be full of smart people like you. You will all be early in your careers and equally as curious about building something big.

03

Find your edge

Using our frameworks, you will define your edge - the skills or knowledge that set you apart - and learn to apply them to solving problems.

04

Ideate

Work with other cohort members to build solutions to big problems. Our team of expert advisors will be on hand to guide you through the idea maze to test your ideas.

05

To the moon!

By the end of the boot camp, you will have an idea of whether you have what it takes to become a founder, and a game plan to move forward.
You can pitch for investment, apply to the Entrepreneur First programme, or, if you find that founding isn't for you, go back to work or study.

Who is FIND for?

It's for people who have an β€œitch” to scratch. Those who have something to prove. It is an opportunity to trial whether founding a company will scratch this itch.


FIND is perfect for you if you are in your final year of studies, PhD, or have been working for a couple of years.


You do not need to be ready to found now but you should be open to building a startup within the next year.

FAQs

How much does it cost?
