Found nurture flourish

This programme is designed to educate and empower female founders who want to build an engaged online community.

Learn how to harness the power of community as an asset & advantage to your business.

Hi, I’m Lara, founder of Found & Flourish. I’m a Brighton and London based entrepreneur on a mission to close the opportunity gap for female founders.  

I’ve experienced first-hand the loneliness of running a business, it’s a tough old gig especially when you’re navigating the start-up space on your own. Before running F&F I ran my own social media consultancy and I found the whole experience incredibly isolating and lonely. I craved connection and community and at the time, really struggled to find anything that resonated with me. That’s why Found & Flourish exists.

In less than two years I have grown Found & Flourish from 0 to 15,000 women, I have hosted over 100 events and 1,5000 women. We have 200+ members with 600+ on the waitlist and over 12,000 followers on Instagram, a completely organically grown and nurtured account.  

I’m often asked in interviews about the power of community, how I built such an engaged community over the last two years and how others can do the same. 

So I decided to create a programme, offering business owners the opportunity to learn my tips and tricks for not only building an engaged community but one which is aligned with your values and will continue to support you, your brand and everything you do.

Found & Flourish is the business family you always wish you could have – and now you can! Often in business it can feel isolating or lonely with hoards of faceless business groups promising support. But Lara is a genuine caring leader of FF and the real deal. She doesn’t market herself as your best friend but the kindness, generosity and support  of the company she has built will feel like a business filtered version of that. FF has kept me going during my own personal tumultuous year. And connected me with some fabulous women.

When I went to my first F&F brunch I had decided it was time to reach out and grow my network. I didn’t really know what to expect but connected with the most amazing amazing women. I’ve since learned about brand partnerships and PR which has been a total game changer for my business. I’m constantly finding inspiration in their network of awesome business women.

Finally a community that feels like ME
The Found and Flourish community is everything you hoped “networking” would be with zero pretension and zero cringe. Just chock full of kind and supportive women who all want to help each other and have a ruddy good time doing it. What could be better?!
The Masterclasses and workshops are informative yet relaxed, with expert panellists that bring so much useful information and energy to a range of topics from PR to investing and everything in between.
Lara is one of the most generous and warm women I’ve ever met, and her attention to detail and kind nature ensures every single member of her community feels instantly at home. I’ve been to a lot of networking events but none have made me feel as welcome as the Found and Flourish crew do!
