The Story Behind TheFunded, by @Founderly [Video]

TheFunded.com News

Posted by jonnystartup on 2012-06-01

PUBLIC:

Our friends at San Francisco-based FounderLY specialize in deep-diving the stories behind company founders, and last week they did just that in a series of video interviews with TheFunded.com's Founder, Adeo Ressi.

In the video below, Adeo describes the beginnings of TheFunded.com. In particular, he says that, after the dot bomb of the late nineties, "investors had lost so much money that they rebounded to an extreme where they squeezed entrepreneurs and mistreated them to a large degree." After being treated poorly by his investors, Adeo realized there were systemic issues underlying entrepreneurship that made it impossible to successfully build companies as a profession. So, "TheFunded was designed to clean up something that had become abusive and set it straight."

Watch the full 15 minute video below;

Adeo will be leading the upcoming Silicon Valley Founder Institute program. The Application Deadline is this Sunday, June 3rd. If you or somebody you know could use expert training and feedback to launch a technology company, then click here to apply today.

Special thanks to our friends at FounderLY for the interview. Be sure to check out www.founderly.com to see video interviews with other top entrepreneurs, or follow them on Twitter at @founderly.
