The FoundersCard, also known as the elite ‘black card’ for entrepreneurs, is one of the greatest concepts out there today! The FoundersCard, founded by Eric Kuhn, was developed to create a network of business owners that would have access to an array of discounted products and services to place somewhat of an ease to their mostly hectic lives. The company once only operated under the “invite-only” status, however, now entrepreneurs can apply to be a member of the program. Although the application has been relaxed, the entrance is still at a 70% acceptance rate.
Some of the current members are Craig Newmark, Digg founder Kevin Rose, Lowercase Capital founder and Twitter investor Chris Sacca, TechStars co-founder David Tisch, TaskRabbit’s Leah Busque, co-founder of Obvious and former Twitter Product VP Jason Goldman, LivingSocial co-founder Aaron Batalion, Simple’s Alex Payne, Box co-founder Dylan Smith, Jon Steinberg of Buzzfeed, Ben Lerer of Thrillist and author and investor Tim Ferriss — just to name a few.
Enough with that, lets get down to the good stuff – the perks! Check out some of the benefits below:
- Upgrade your Hilton HHonors membership to the HHonors Gold Elite status without having to spend 26 nights or accruing 60,000 points.
- $100 towards a private chef session
- Up to 30% off at select fashion brands (Rag & Bone, John Varvatos and more)
- Discounts on limo service, car rentals and flights
- Discounts at brands such as Virgin America/Atlantic, Lufthansa, Cathay, Apple, UPS, ZipCar, Gilt City and TaskRabbit
Now, we here at LuxuriousPROTOTYPE.com want all of our “Club Members (YOU)” to be able to have these sorts of discounts, saving and complimentary services as well. We talked to the FoundersCard to see if we could get a discount for you guys. Guess what…it worked.
