Community as Capital: Why We Invest in People-Building

April 26th, 2021 by

Founders Circle Capital is delighted to announce the closing of Fund III at $355M. Now, we’re even stronger in our ability to invest in the people building today’s fastest-growing companies who find themselves navigating the unique challenges of transitioning from startup to hyperscale. We believe, to our core, in the organizing principle of community as capital and that no company can be built if its people aren’t built first. Though funding in its various forms is essential, an investment in you is the most valuable currency we can offer.
