The Nontraditional Founder


In January of 2020, 10 budding entrepreneurs started a journey together in Geekwise Academy’s inaugural Founders Cohort.

Between January and July, those founders learned, worked, failed, and succeeded together. Their companies ranged from mobile apps to cosmetics, coffee shops to high tech water devices. The cohort was a crash-course in entrepreneurship, including workshops, pitch sessions, and nonstop coaching from entrepreneurs who looked like them – personalizing the journey to the next phase of their startups.

We are honored to have captured their experience and words in a short documentary called “The Nontraditional Founder.”
