"It's so hard for founders to talk about the things they're trying to solve when they don't have previous experience or when they don't have a strong network of founders. We are not in the position to be able to create that for them, so we came to The Grand. The experience with The Grand has been transformative for many of the founders in my portfolio."

The Grand provided me with a community to be in the presence of other founders and recognize that the day-to-day struggles we all face have a lot more in common with each other than we may have appreciated.

In smaller companies, the founding role can be lonely. Having a group of people to commiserate with, to share ideas with, to think about ways that we can solve the challenges that we face was an incredibly worthwhile way to spend a little bit of time every couple of weeks.
