Wowing the audience.jpg
Therése’s programs are rooted in a behavioral science framework that allows each client to have a highly curated plan to achieve lifestyle and professional leadership goals; she then coaches you within a support structure that helps you stay accountable and ultimately catalyze the transformations you are seeking. By teaching you how to design and scale a strong culture, she shows you how to align the key pillars of leadership, recruitment, and strategy to grow your business.
— Sridhar Iyengar, Founder and CEO at Elemental Machines
 
Highly driven, goal-focused and with an extraordinary degree of commitment to her projects. She can handle the grit of being an entrepreneur – not being someone to quit or easily doubt her ideas or vision. She wants to bring about change and engages the people around her in her ideas. She is also an advocate of entrepreneurship and has helped countless people on their path to building their business. I count her among the most inspirational and brilliant people I have the fortune to know.
— Jakob Persson, Co-founder and CKO at NodeOne

Founders Yet to Be Empowered

 

After 17 years as a founder, an executive/founder coach, and the visionary behind 30minMBA, Therése Gedda, has seen the good, the bad, and the ugly in building and scaling a startup. She has met and worked with thousands of amazing founders over the years, but the same challenges keep coming up. She realized that it's not that the founders aren't capable of performing under the extreme pressure, but they are seldom supported to truly thrive. This is why we decided to design a unique executive education program for high performing founders.

 
 
 

Isolation rates in the top 3 concerns facing founders*

Social isolation is a growing epidemic with considerable physical, mental, and emotional consequences. The pressure of being a startup CXO, the pressure from the team, investors, boards, and customers, all looking for the answers to the business challenges is highly demanding and can easily lead to isolation.

Isolation leads to poor decision making and lack of self-care

As leaders and founders, we can easily get trapped in the entrepreneurial rollercoaster and miss the big picture, which can lead to miss opportunities. To build a supportive sounding board of founders that give you perspective and honest advice is extremely valuable.

Lack of highly tailored leadership development opportunities

High Achievers are building successful companies. To support them to thrive daily, leaders need to develop their leadership techniques continuously. However, there are very few founder tailored executive education programs that jointly leverage leadership science and real-life founder's experience.

Empowering positive giving individuals

As the entrepreneurial lifestyle gains the fame of success and money, new founders are emerging for the wrong reasons as they are in it for the fame and fortune and not to change the world for the better. As empathic giving founders, we need to empower ourselves with actionable leadership and lifestyle design techniques, as well as support fellow founders moved by purpose and contribution.

 A Executive Education Program Tailored for You as Founder and Leader

A yearly program with 5 Bespoke Events for 10 like-minded founders with a start in September 2019

There are many benefits of having a clear direction for your company and your life as a High Achiever. However, the rollercoaster is constant and it’s easy to constantly be in the 'doing' mindset. This is the time and space to reflect on where you are heading and why.

What do you envision for your company? How do you define a purpose for your life? What're your values? Are your company and life purpose and values aligned? How do you design a company culture and a lifestyle that serve these purposes?


MM - II.PNG

The life as a founder and High Achiever is all about challenging the status quo and aiming at making a difference. It's about designing the life you desire, not the life provided to you. It's about being outside your comfort zone. With that, comes all, the good, the bad, and the ugly. So the question is; how do you best navigate in all of this?

How can you handle the entrepreneurial rollercoaster with the right mindset? How do you experience the uncomfortable? How do you develop habits that support you to thrive?


MM - III.PNG

High Achievers are building successful companies. To build a dream team of High Achievers to achieve ambitious goals, it’s important to uncover what keeps High Achievers and High Potentials engaged. What is crucial, and what can be overlooked to achieve this?

How can you lead and empower your High Achievers to thrive? How can you lead your people more effectively by using our Workplace Engagement Model?


MM - IV.PNG

Your business is flourishing. There is the potential for growth and you want to bring in those individuals that will enable that growth. Those individuals who care deeply about the company’s success. Yet, it is tough to attract and keep the best talent without a designed culture and a supportive framework to identify the best people for your company.

How do you attract the best people? How do you design a recruitment process designed for your culture and values?
How do you set a new team member up for success already during the on-boarding process? How do you let go of the wrong people while protecting your culture and company?


MM - V.PNG

As your company grows, so do you, as a leader, visionary, and High Achiever. How do you stay hungry, focused and thriving?

What are your next steps? What are the goals for the company? And, for you as an individual? Do they match? Is it time to plan for a potential exit?

After completing our one-year program, you will have a lifelong free membership for community access and be invited to join our yearly community event, explore Mastermind sessions tailored for you as alumni, and enjoy one-on-one time with a recognized Founder/ Executive Coach.

Meet The Visionary Behind Founder Mastermind, Therése, who has Supported Thousands of Founders and Executives during the Past 17 Years


Having founded three companies over the years, I realized one important thing along the way - you can never afford to stop learning. As each company grew from a handful to hundreds of people, the challenges have rarely been the same, so after 15 years of start-ups, I had the pleasure of meeting and engaging Therése to be my personal founder/executive coach. While I’ve worked with other “coaches” in the past, none of them had the extraordinary and rare combination of skills and experience that I found with Therése: she’s a founder herself, she’s worked with an international cohort of clients (giving her a uniquely diverse perspective), she’s a sought-after keynote speaker on business culture and lifestyle design (which are key for any entrepreneur or executive). Her programs are rooted in a behavioral science framework that allows each client to have a highly curated plan to achieve lifestyle and professional leadership goals; she then coaches you within a support structure that helps you stay accountable and ultimately catalyze the transformations you are seeking. By teaching you how to design and scale a strong culture, she shows you how to align the key pillars of leadership, recruitment, and strategy to grow your business. She is always well-prepared and proactive in her teachings to ensure that her clients maximize the value of the programs. When I talk about Therése with fellow founders, I often refer to her as a “founder therapist” - someone that can empathize and share the burden of your journey and help you navigate successfully. I’ve personally recommended her to many of my founder friends who have subsequently gone on to refer her to their friends - a testament to her continued impact.
— Sridhar Iyengar, Founder and CEO at Elemental Machines
Therése has the ability to create magic – constantly, it seems. With loads of creativity and determination, Therese has demonstrated a remarkable ability to create exceptional value and media attention from limited resources. She is a phenomenal startup CEO, an incredible leader and she has an amazing passion for empowering individuals to reach their fullest potential.
I’m proud to vouch for her, because I’ve seen from the inside how she works and what she does to always deliver - both on stage as a keynote speaker and behind-the-scenes in business. Therése is extremely talented across the board and with her determination, no industry is safe from disruption.
— Tony Friede, Investment Manager at VINNOVA
Being a strategic advisor of 30minMBA, I have had the great opportunity of working together with Therése. She is an amazing person and an exceptional leader who has built several companies from scratch. She started her entrepreneurial journey as a 17-year-old, founding a management consultancy company successfully working with startups and fast-growing firms for over a decade. With over 15 years as a founder and keynote speaker, she is one of the most talented individuals I have ever met. Therése has a great passion for entrepreneurship with a remarkable degree of commitment to her projects. The dedication to getting things done, the passion for challenging the status quo and empowering people to greatness, makes her an extraordinary inspiration for myself and other founders.
— Anneli Viklund, Innovation Expert at ALMI
