To ensure every founder in the startup ecosystem has the support to reach their full potential.
With 9 out of 10 founders showing signs of mental health strain and 78% saying they feel lonely as a leader on the startup rollercoaster we have a responsibility as an ecosystem to positively shift the dial. With a focus on founder wellbeing and leadership skills we can fuel each and every entrepreneur to reach their full potential, without sacrificing wellbeing.
If we crack this together, as an ecosystem, then more founders succeed, more startups success, and that delivers returns for all.
We do this
Choose your founder fuel…
We’re here to empower other entrepreneurs on this rollercoaster start-up journey that we bravely choose. It’s a journey filled with exhilarating highs and anxiety-inducing lows and there’s far too many still navigating this journey feeling alone, despite the size of the industry and breadth of business support available. We don’t accept the status quo of masks and bravado, where everyone is “doing great”. It doesn’t result in optimum performance for ourselves or our businesses.
We believe we can do better. We can be better. And it all starts together.
There’s no dog-eat-dog here. 3Sixty Founders believe in the power of peers to unlock potential in ourselves and our ecosystem. We believe that investing in the individual is key to unlocking start-up success and passionately believe that the leadership training found in big businesses needs to be made accessible to the innovators of the future too. We accept that growth means growing ourselves too and seek out the tools and training we need to be our best, most-effective, high-performing selves.
In the future, there’ll be no need for our mission: We won’t need to talk about supporting each other, or talking openly about our experiences. It will be mainstream. For the good of the whole.
Are you a 3Sixty Founder? Let’s change our world.
Want some founder fuel for your cohort?
Operate for 10 hours a day, every day, for over two years bouncing off the red-line of stress and urgency and eventually your body tells you enough is enough. That telling came in the form of post-traumatic-stress reactions for 3Sixty co-founder Christina. In short, the brain had rewired to think almost everything was a fight-or-flight situation and as a result a heart-racing, stomach-churning, panic-style reaction could happen at any time. Eating your breakfast, walking the dog, just answering an email. It is debilitating. It is incapacitating. Functioning as a highly effective, efficient leader of an award-winning start-up stopped.
That’s just one story. We’ve now heard hundreds of others.
By sharing this one story with other founders it became clear that everyone was suffering in silence in one way or another – stories of complete burn out, anxiety, panic attacks, impostor syndrome – all openly shared by just one story being shared first. Yet everyone felt they were the only one. Until now.
weare3Sixty is founded and fuelled by a passionate team eager to put a stop to this silence, now and in the future, so that founders thrive, not just survive, on the rollercoaster that is start-up life. We do this by opening up the conversation; through our Founder Skills training; and by creating the all-important support-structure with our FounderCircles.
