We help with everything from prototyping and testing value propositions to lining up beta customers.

Cofounders also manages funds for Hatcher+ providing up to $35,000 in pre-seed convertible debt financing. Cofounders Capital is managed by serially-successful entrepreneur, David Gardner and Tim McLoughlin along with a team of three venture partners and over ninety advisers and volunteer mentors who are all investors in the fund, eager to support entrepreneurship and to help our portfolio companies succeed.

If you have questions or want to discuss your startup with us it’s best to send us an email first. We don’t need a business plan or even a presentation deck. Just briefly describe your idea in your own words, the value it creates and who would want to buy it. We’ll let you know if it fits with our particular expertise and focus. If so, we’ll schedule a meeting with you. If not then we will direct you other sources of help that might be a better fit with what you are doing.
Meeting us and need the address? We share a lobby with the Cary Theater and BREW Coffee in downtown Cary. Just take the elevator to the third floor.
122 E. Chatham St
