Learn from the top nonfiction books with fellow founders in the Founder Book Club

Why the Founder Book Club?

“It can be lonely at the top as a founder. Talking with fellow entrepreneurs about their struggles and insights from their journey can be your secret to success. It’s like founder therapy with a different theme each month. Tapping into the greatest minds ever lived.”
