“Working with The Grand to support our founders with group coaching was impactful and seamless. Our founders emerged feeling closer to one another and gaining new perspectives that helped them become better leaders. The Grand supported me in scaling myself and I knew we were in good hands given their attention to detail, their feedback loops, and their coaching expertise. I highly recommend partnering with them.”

“My confidence in my ability to lead a team at Startupy are a direct outcome of the coaching I have received from The Grand. It’s a privilege to have a group of peers share a space to self-reflect, be vulnerable, and grow as leaders. The mission The Grand has embarked on to help people navigate work and life decisions in community is special - founders need financial capital, but they also need emotional capital - good energy, positivity, and resilience.”

“The Grand Council for Founders far exceeded my expectations. The authenticity that everyone shows up with and the care everyone shows one another is incredible. I can honestly say I’ve altered business decisions because of the help I’ve gotten from folks, not to mention forged real relationships with other founders that I can truly lean on."

How it works

Scalable and seamless setup

We have the ability to serve portfolios of all sizes. You can identify the founders in your portfolio you’d like to participate in The Grand. We can start with a few groups and scale as you grow.

Expert curation and facilitation

Each group consists of 6-8 founders. We’ll hand-curate the groups to ensure they are highly relevant and valuable for founders, becoming their personal sounding board. Each group is expertly facilitated by a professional coach.

Ongoing support

Founders participate in The Grand Council for six months, meeting for 90 mins with their group and coach every 2 weeks. Founders also benefit from our global community, speaker series, and ongoing events focused on leadership and growth.
