Founders Fieldnotes is back after a long summer break (for the newsletter, not for us really..). Like every good football fan, and every parent, we measure years from summer to summer and we are super excited to start a new “season”. At Founders, what brings us out of bed every morning is the idea of building something from nothing. We get excited when we do it, and we get excited watching great people doing it. This issue is all about getting started and building something great. Enjoy!

Stuff we believe in
Learning from founders
In a world where “how to” guides are abundant, and where every day brings a new improvised guru to the stage, we believe the best way to understand what it means to start a company is to listen to the stories of people that did it.
The world thinks of startup founders as having some kind of superhuman confidence, but a lot of them were uncertain at first about starting a company. What they weren’t uncertain about was making something good—or trying to fix something broken.
