Our Mission

For the Dreamers

Our mission is to build an efficient and effective platform that connects founders and investors so amazing things can happen.

Founders are the dreamers in action, driving innovation and pushing the world forward. They are the center of the universe. Don’t @ us, we don’t want to hear it. 

Our Story

Behind FirstLook

Brian Folmer, Founder 

I started FirstLook to give founders the opportunity to push forward ideas changing the world, and investors the opportunity to support those changing the world.

Years ago I joined a retail tech and consumer goods accelerator in NYC. Each day I witnessed the great lengths founders went to grab our attention. If successful, we’d ask for product samples, try them, and decide whether to continue conversations. 

I began to wonder if there could be a better way for founders to get their products into investor hands. Something that would give them their time and energy back so they could focus on building instead of raising. While bike riding one sunny afternoon, I had my “OMG, this is it” moment. Many sleepless nights later, FirstLook was born. 

We exist to create value which drives society to benefit humanity. This is our highest calling.
