Back in December, we announced our forthcoming partnership with The Founder Institute to support early-stage entrepreneurs with creative services, resources and mentorship. We’re excited to share the full details of the partnership with the official press release below. Stay tuned for more Kworq x FI magic to come!
January 16th, Palo Alto, CA – The Founder Institute (http://fi.co), the world’s premier startup launch program, and Kworq (https://kworq.com), a creative agency creating digital brand stories and crafting killer experiences, are announcing a global partnership aimed at providing graduates of the Founder Institute the opportunity to create beautiful and cohesive brands in 2017. As part of this partnership, the two organizations are announcing a 50% discount for Founder Institute graduates on their first purchase toward creative materials.
“Your pitch deck is the first introduction to your company. Without a well-versed brand story and cohesive design your deck will get lost in the sea of pitches. Make yourself stand out from the beginning.” – Chris Sullivan, Co-Founder & Brand Storyteller of Kworq
Founder Institute and Kworq will collaborate to support the creative and marketing needs of the Founder Institute’s 2,200+ graduates from over 60 countries. In addition to creating cohesive branding for startups around the globe, a goal of this initiative will be to reiterate the importance of effective branding on the success of startups by providing founders in the program with pitch deck templates.
“In order to succeed after graduation, Founder Institute graduate companies need to have a clear and effective pitch deck.” says Adeo Ressi, Founder & CEO of the Founder Institute. “Often, founders without a design background aren’t sure how to get started on a pitch deck. Our partnership with Kworq will provide our founders and graduates with well-designed templates that will help them get traction and funding for their company.”
For aspiring and idea-stage entrepreneurs up to the challenge, the Founder Institute’s comprehensive step-by-step program provides the structure, mentor support, and global network of entrepreneurs needed to start an enduring company. In addition, the Founder Institute is the only program of its kind that focuses on people versus ideas, accepts founders with day jobs, and shares equity with all participants. Founder Institute Graduate companies include fast-rising startups across 6 continents like Udemy, Realty Mogul, goplaceit, Appota, and many more.
Kworq is a Creative Agency located in SoHo, NYC.
Our co-founders – Guy Peires and Chris Sullivan – come from a production background where the foundation of all content is a solid narrative. We take that same approach with our clients – big and small. It’s not good enough to have a great idea for a business. Now – more than ever – early stage startups need to set themselves apart by finding a strong brand narrative. That starts with the pitch deck.
