Did you get into business to simply coast along, or to make a real difference in your life?

It is time to get on top of that to-do list, work smarter and start chasing those goals you have been ‘meaning’ to get a start on.

A mastermind is for you if …

  • You want to be part of a genuine community of like-minded business owners.
  • You are ready to shake things up; just like you promised yourself when you
    left your 9–5.
  • You have big goals and need some assistance staying on track.
  • You need some fresh ideas or a new perspective.
  • You work from home and the novelty of working in your pyjamas has worn off.
  • You need help scaling, hiring, firing, leading and managing. 

If this is where you are at, you are not alone. Starting a business isn’t easy, but you have already done the hardest part – and that’s starting. Now get ready to level up alongside a team of business owners who want to see you succeed

The Founders Team is your own curated mastermind aligned with your goals and stage of business. And your spot is exclusive to your industry – creating a safe, competitor-free space.

Benefit from real advice, accountability and the encouragement of members who ‘get it’ in the way your parents, family and friends never will.

It’s impossible
to work smarter when you’re going it alone

Our masterminds are designed to be a cost-effective alternative to one-on-one business coaching and mentoring.

At The Founders Team, you gain the support of members who have your back as you step outside your comfort zone. We meet once a month to work through challenges collectively, share ideas, set goals (and smash them), and celebrate wins.

No business dream or pivot is too crazy. No question too silly to ask. We bring a balance of fun and productivity to each meeting – because we believe business should always blend both of these things. After all, that’s why you started your own thing, right?

When you join, you gain…

Accountability
Set realistic goals and a deadline to achieve them. We hold you accountable and help you map out milestones to make those goals a reality.

Fresh ideas
Get the airtime you need to workshop a roadblock or challenge. Think of your mastermind members as your own team of personal advisors.

Encouragement
Small or big, it’s so important to celebrate your achievements – especially if you’re a solo operator. If you have a big win, we may even switch the coffee for bubbles.

Motivation
We encourage one another to reach their potential. Knowing you aren’t alone is just the first step – we want you to leave each meeting high on ‘I can do this’ vibes.

Collaboration
Our members regularly work together on projects, speak at one another’s events and put their hands up for beta testing of new products.

On-tap support
When you need advice or a vent before your next meeting, your team’s private Slack channel will keep you motivated between sessions.

So… who’s behind all of this?

The Founders Team was established by Leanne Webber – a driven business owner and natural community builder who is fuelled by the ambitious energy of her members.

As well as being the brains behind our masterminds, she is also the co-founder of custom software development company Webbernet.

It was while Webbernet was having growing pains that Leanne wished she had her own community to turn to for support. Within weeks of this, her trademark ‘just start somewhere’ attitude saw her fill six mastermind teams before even registering a business name.

Having worked in both multi-million dollar corporations and lean startups, Leanne understands the different paths businesses take; including those that fizzle out. After her first ecommerce business failed when she was just 23, she saw that chapter of her life for what it was – a chance to learn and grow. All this experience has set the foundations for the goal-oriented community Leanne has built at The Founders Team.

“Let’s stop romanticising hustle – I want you to build a business that works for you. Every day we face new challenges in business, and I am here to help you get through every new hire, pricing increase and product launch.”

What makes our masterminds different?

Ready to stop wasting time looking at your competition and start running your own race? Then we have a mastermind team for you. Here is how it works:

You are matched with a team at your level of business. Scale up or stay intentionally small – whatever your aim is, we connect you with people who share your ambition.

Masterminds happen monthly. We want you to commit, because you are your business’ best asset, and this is an investment in you.

At each mastermind, you report on the progress of your goals, celebrate your achievements, work through any challenges you are facing, and soak up the hard-won advice of other members.

After each mastermind, your goals for the month are emailed to you, so your roadmap is always handy.

Between masterminds, you have access to a private Slack community where the connection continues and Leanne offers extra tips and advice.

Every team is capped at six participants to ensure you get real value from each mastermind. There are multiple masterminds in Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and online running at different times and days to suit your schedule.

We are here to assert your competitive edge, so your place is exclusive to your industry. This gives you privacy from competitors, the chance to apply what is working in other industries to your own business, plus new avenues for collaboration.

Our masterminds have been the catalyst for exciting new collaborations, the sharing of priceless business and marketing tactics, and referrals that connect our founders with their ideal customers.

If you are already putting in the hard work, you owe it to yourself to dedicate two hours every month to your growth.

What our members say

One of the toughest parts of biz life? Wondering whether you are on the right track. Before I joined this mastermind, I often felt unsure of my decisions and would second guess myself often. Joining The Founders Team is one of the best things I ever did! The support, cheerleading, advice and feedback I have received from every single person in the group has been priceless. Having a group of people who have your back is everything. I have that now, and I am so grateful.


Stevie Dillon, Stevie Says Social

I leave every mastermind meeting buzzing with confidence. At each session, I get so many new ideas as well as honest feedback on things I need an external perspective on, like new services or what to charge. As a one-woman show, the accountability to follow through on my goals was the piece of the puzzle I had been missing. Leanne masterfully makes every session really productive without it feeling like work.


Melinda Halloran, The Copy Merchant

Mastermind groups have helped me stand out in a very popular and over-saturated market. I’ve learned more about the overall operation of a business than I imagine you could at school or a short course. Thank you to Leanne for creating something unique that every business owner needs. Knowledge is power and that is why I highly recommend all business owners should attend a mastermind group.


Sammy Kurtz, Brooklyn & Billie – Blowdry & Beauty Bar

As a solo business owner I decided to join the Founders Team so I could have a support network of people who get it! The value I receive is second to none and I honestly believe my business wouldn’t have grown like it has without the advice and support of my founders team members. It is such a welcoming safe space where I can feel comfortable to discuss my wins, challenges and everything in between with people that will build me up. I couldn’t be more thankful for The Founders Team.


Rhiannon Stalley, Platter to Plate

I decided to join The Founders Team because I was craving that community and accountability – two things I think all business owners need – and to be honest, I haven’t looked back since. I look forward to seeing my group every month! It also gives me the time to work on and not always in the business. It’s like I’ve got a support team (read:cheerleading squad) with a myriad of knowledge and wealth of expertise that I can not only tap into at anytime but can also have a real honest chat to at anytime just about business and life (and know they have always got my back!)


Anita Siek, Wordfetti

Having been in a mastermind previously, I knew the value of being in a group of similar-minded business owners, so I had no hesitations at all about joining. The sessions have been the perfect balance of fun and business – and I’ve left every session with a big list of ideas and actions to implement. It really helps to have an outsider’s perspective on the business, as we tend to get so caught up in the day-to-day. Highly recommend The Founders Team to anyone running a business on their own or with a team!


Steph Taylor, Steph Taylor Co.

I found The Founders Team via the instagram post of a colleague of mine and was immediately inspired to email Leanne to see if I could be a part of one of the mastermind groups. Unlike other groups, Leanne requested a bunch of information about my business so that she could match me with the perfect group, which always makes for relevant and challenging discussions. My group is filled with people at different levels of business to ensure there’s always someone to learn from, but it’s also a place to share common business struggles and wins. To any business owners out there, I would highly recommend connecting with The Founders Team as a way to not only grow your business but also help you feel less alone in this entrepreneur journey!
