Founders Factory builds and funds startups together with exceptional entrepreneurs and the world’s leading companies. Created by IPO-exited founders, we offer founders capital, operational support from a team of hands-on experts, and unrivalled access to a coalition of industry-leading corporate partners. Since 2015, our 300+ portfolio companies have raised $800mm follow-on funding from a roster of notable investors.
Our Studio partners with entrepreneurs at day one, developing new ideas, technologies and business models into high growth companies. Together with Aviva, the UK’s largest insurer with £357bn AUM, we’re now exploring concepts and opportunities at the intersection of health and finance.
We’re looking for an experienced operator with entrepreneurial ambitions to co-create a new concept together with our Venture Design team. You will then lead the venture as Founder & CEO with our investment and the full backing of Founders Factory.
Financial Longevity: Opportunities in Ageing Populations
People are living longer, healthier and more prosperous lives. This global trend marks significant changes to the systems that underpin our society: from economic growth, patterns of work, retirement and family dynamics, to housing, healthcare and agriculture. We believe this represents an opportunity to build impactful technology solutions in markets with unbound potential.
Industries broadly categorised within “longevity” are thriving and attracting large sums of investments. While very focused on research, opportunities in this space are not limited to scientific advancements. We are seeing potential in “second-degree” effects which will impact sectors like consumer technology, healthcare and fintech.
We’re particularly interested in building concepts that explore the impact of this global trend applied to the areas of Protection, Health, Housing, Leisure, and Wealth & Work. You can read our full Longevity Thesis here.
Major market considerations:
- By 2050, life expectancy worldwide is set to increase by seven years.
- Some scientists believe we could be living to 120 years by 2050.-
- We will see a shift in conversation from life span to health span.
- Represented by a population segment with the greatest purchasing power.
