Founder House has truly become my home. When I moved in over a year ago, I thought that it would only be for a few weeks. Between the friendships that I have made, the events that have enriched my life and career, being inspired by my housemates, finding help when I'm struggling, constant motivation, and just an overall feeling of belonging, Founder House has been an amazing experience.
Co-Founder @ GoldSkyLines
After finishing college in Philadelphia , I really wanted to move to New York. I wanted to challenge myself to build a business. So I searched for the most affordable room in NY I could possibly find. Both online and offline. Nothing was right. Nothing guaranteed me friends. Nothing guaranteed that I would be able to move to New York. Then I found Founder house. A home, friends, co-working space all in one affordable space for a young entrant into the city. How has Founder House benefitted me?
Founder House is home. Founder House is family.
Co-Founder at RP-Plastics & Flatiron School Alumni
Living at FH was a huge privilege. Having access to people from such different backgrounds was a phenomenal experience (getting help from fellow programmers on side projects to debates that last all night to finding new running partners). The community has so much to offer and living in a building full of so much talent is something I would do again in a heart beat.

Living at Founder House while attending an immersive course in web development has been the perfect way to get the most out of my experience in New York city. Getting to know the different members and the support I have received from them will be extremely advantageous for growing my company back in my home country.
Software Engineer at Viacom
I've spent one year sharing a house with more roommates than most people do their whole life. Today marks 365 days of co-living with the most diverse and inspiring people I've ever met, in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods Brooklyn has to offer. I've seen generations move in and out and made close friends from all over the world. Best decision I've ever made - thanks for everything so far, James, Justin, and the Founder House community. You guys have changed my life for the better.

Awesome. Super awesome. Super duper awesome.
I love it (Founder House). Coming back to people who are working encourages you to work. I also get to brainstorm with people who have different perspectives.

I knew from the moment I walked in the door that joining Founder House was the right next step on my journey into software engineering. Each one of my fellow members, and all of the guest speakers, have inspired me more than ever to "just do it!" and that is exactly what I needed.

I loved my stay at Founder House! I met amazing people, learned a bunch of new tech, made new friends and met potential future colleagues/co-founders. Everyone was fun and friendly, and the House Founders regularly organized activities such as Speaker Events, Show and Tell, Trivia Nights, and even a Hackathon weekend. The House is not only a great place to live in the city but it also provides a great opportunity to get to know the budding local tech scene.
