Founders

It starts with vision.

Creators. Builders. Warriors. Founders have the courage and determination to turn a dream into reality. You understand the responsibility you have to others you've inspired to join your journey. For decisions that affect your business, your people, and your legacy, trust forms the foundation of your advisory relationships.

At Egon Zehnder, we've worked with hundreds of founders. We partner with young companies to forge teams delivering sustained growth. We assemble networks of trusted advisors to help navigate the path. We engage with founding teams on personal development and team dynamics. We build boards for those contemplating capital markets.

No matter what growth stage or industry your business is in, we honor your vision and attune to your way of working. We share your bias for action, helping you develop high-performance organizations. We join you as you plan for new leadership and for your next chapter. We're here to move in lockstep with you and help you anticipate and plan for the challenges ahead. For you and your company, "good enough" can never be enough.
