eFounders is a startup studio.

Our process is to develop unique business ideas inside our startup studio. Once an idea is validated, we partner up with one or two entrepreneurs to develop the business with us and make it skyrocket. We build 3 to 4 SaaS startups a year. After 18 months, each startup becomes independent. So far, we have built 11 successful startups used by millions of businesses: Forest, Spendesk, Hivy, Illustrio, Aircall, Front, Mention, Textmaster, MailJet.


Get in touch with with us for all content and PR matters. We will answer all your questions and organize interviews with the founders of the studio.
