Frequently Asked Questions 🚧

This depends on the program description, your requirements, the benefits you are offering, the region that you are targeting. We have programs that achieve over 200 applications, and programs that only reach 5-10. As a start, you can expect to receive at least 10 applications within the first week. If not, please reach out to our connector coordinators, they will help you to improve the wording and to activate connectors for you.

You can select from “PoC”, “Acceleration”, “Investment”, “Incubation”, “Landing Program”, “Competition” and a few more choices.

We also have for certain clients the opportunity to upload hidden projects that focus on “Investors Sourcing” or “Mentor Sourcing”. Only chosen connectors can see these projects and you will receive applications and referrals for investors and mentors.

You only pay for the contact details of those startups that you are keen to reach out to. If you receive for example 100 applications, but you consider only 10 as quality, you would choose to top up “Flair Credits” in order to access the contact details of those 10 startups.

How we helped our clients


Founders Lair has a tremendous reach and delivered several startups that fitted very precisely to our needs. Definitely beyond expectations.

This competition is the first collaboration with Founder Lair and it was a very pleasant and successful experience. Throughout the entire process, Founder Lair actively cooperated, meticulously planned, widely promoted, and utilized its own platform advantages, which helped to expand the participation of overseas projects in the competition. Within a short recruitment period of one month, they excellently completed the recruitment plan. In the future, we hope that Founder Lair can connect more entrepreneurial teams, build bridges, and help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams.

We are very satisfied with setup of the platform and how quick questions were answered. Looking forward to cooperate with FoundersLair again soon.”

Maren Petry, National Senior Director Innovation, German Chamber Greater China


We have been working with Founders Lair on several projects. It is always challenging to identify and attract early stage startups who are about to scale, especially on very specific topics such as FinTech and InsurTech. Founders Lair helped us achieve our targeted numbers and most importantly has delivered high quality of startups.

In addition, they have always offered dedicated support, flexibility and hands-on approach to every project we have been working on.


Founders Lair has been an invaluable partner for HICOOL as we continue to expand our international startup network and build a supportive startup ecosystem in Beijing. The team at Founders Lair has a deep understanding of the global startup landscape and has provided us with exceptional support and connections. We appreciate their commitment to supporting startups in developing their global business and look forward to continuing our long-term partnership.

The Founders Lair platform is very convenient to use. After the competition is live on the platform, you can check and follow up on the application status in real time. Special thanks to the founder Jelte for organizing an online Q&A meeting for global connectors for our competition, so that they can better understand our scouting needs and refer more suitable projects efficiently. Founders Lair has a very strong international network, which has well solved the scouting needs of our competition. Finally, I would also like to thank the execution team for helping us solve various problems during the scouting period and giving us useful suggestions.
