"I hated waiting to get accepted but once I was in I understood why. The playbooks inside the community are worth a ton just by themselves. I used several templates I couldnโ€™t find anywhere else."

"Iโ€™ve tried several Slack channels and Facebook groups focused on SaaS founders. FounderLed is a totally different experience. The community is tight knit and small on purpose. Everyone contributes weekly. My biggest gains have come from ideas I got in the group!"
