What is a founder?
A founder to us is anyone actively building a product or company. Founders can be in any industry or have any expertise. You may have a registered business but you may not.
If you only have an idea and want others to create the product and company for you, you aren't a founder quite yet. Unless of course you have funding and can pay your team market salaries. Generally, you must be taking active steps in the business or on the product to be a founder that we can help.
People are drawn to those who have something to show. That something can be a business plan, a prototype, drawings, market research findings, an active website, or even interested users. There are many other possibilities too. When there is evidence of active progress and understanding, people are typically more interested than when the ask is, "Build it for me for equity."
