An event just for founders, the Founders Event is a founder-only networking event brought to you by the Rude Baguette, which invites active startup founders to come together and discuss issues, receive feedback, and share experiences that only active startup founders can understand.[hr]
[quote]The event is open to all founders - if you're visting from out of town, this is a great way to get toknow the startup scene in France![/quote]
RB team made the event super affordable even for bootstrapped startups, and we've got an open bar and open buffet. RB team are only able to do that with support from our awesome event sponsors: Soundbite Communications, Oxalide & Twilio.
Thank you to Eventbrite for being the exclusive Ticketing Partner, and thanks to the Media Partner Maddyness (us!)
RB is especially excited to announce that the first 50 participants to sign up will receive 50 free Moo Notes Cards, which will be delivered directly to the Paris Founders Event!
Bootstrapped vs. Funded
It's pretty simple. If you've got outside investors (Angels or VCs), you're funded. If you would tell a blog you've "got funding," you're funded.
Who is and isn't a founder.
CEO? Congrats. Unless you're CEO & Co-founder, this event's not for you. A Founder is one of the people who bore their name on the original registration (or yet-to-be-written registration) papers for a company.
We also require that you currently be playing an active role in that company - if you have left the company, congratulations. This event's not for you - we'll see you when you start your next company.
What is and isn't a startup.
Consulting firm? Not a startup. Digital agency? Not a startup. Tech blog? No.
A startup can be defined in many ways (cf: Lean Startup, Steve Blank, etc.), but, for the purposes of this event, a startup is a product-centric company that can scale to global proportions without dependence on human capital.
