Who We Are:
Founders Fund is made up of Founders, Mentors and Funders who believe in a future where entrepreneurship is accessible to everyone, while paying their success forward.
Working together, we support hundreds of our founders across the country by providing access to mentorship, resources, and funding to support their business
How We Got Here:
Founders Fund was established in 2019, by Sheena Brady, Founder of Tease. Tease creates all natural, tea and botanical based products to support your everyday wellness rituals.
Rooted deeply in social impact, Tease has invested in organizations dedicated to elevating women since it's early days. Later on, inspired by her own adversity and challenges as a woman entrepreneur, Sheena became incredibly passionate about creating a community to support other early stage founders, and Founders Fund was created to provide barrier free access to mentorship, education and funding to diverse women founders across the country.
