We've been there – starting a business on your own is hard. Flagship Founders offers a unique framework that enables you to enter the market as smoothly as possible and increase the odds of success based on learnings we have had ourselves.

We Offer a Partnership

Company Building with a Head Start

We start from big, actual industry problems. We validate solutions so they generate significant benefits for customers from day one to serve a massive global market. We've built and scaled successful companies before and bring a unique set of expertise and learning to the game.

Network & Community

Leverage our vast network of experienced shipping, tech, and venture leaders for specialised insights and support. We have direct access to the best people in shipping, who know the industry like the back of their hand. Flagship Founders is a community, and we're all here to help with the heavy lifting when it's needed.

Launch, Scale
& Grow

Our team of professionals is here to assist you as much as you need – from recruitment to marketing to admin tasks – while you build the foundations of your company. We are de facto co-founders, providing full-time, hands-on whatever-it-takes support in order for you to evolve and grow into a market-leading maritime-tech business.
