Intimacy is our north star
We’re a group of lifelong founder friends who help each other get to billions in revenue :)

This is a highly selective community.

I only let in members who share our values and can contribute to the community

What's our community like?

Maddie Wang
Gay / Solo-Founder / Stanford Dropout

I'm building Founders Cafe because as a solo founder, it can be very isolating. Last year, I lost 4 co-founders and a best friend on a previous startup.

Previously built a Minecraft Server ($61k), Amazon Store ($120k), and Queer Chart, where I met my girlfriend & close friends.

If you're interested in joining the Founders Cafe, let's talk and if it's a good fit, down to invite you!
