A community dedicated to sharing stories between startup founders and students through discussions and unconventional events.


To inspire entrepreneurship by sharing stories between startup founders and passionate students through engaging unconventional events.


Founders offers students an inspiring, refreshing new outlook on launching their own ventures by directly connecting students with founders in Los Angeles and at USC. From hosting intimate dinner series events with Shark Tank and Y Combinator alumni to launching discussions among a tight knit community of student self-starters, Founders cultivates a group of USC students that are excited about entrepreneurship and actively engaged in an overarching conversation, ultimately building a place to belong in within the entrepreneurial community.
