|FoundersCard - a new mark of success.|
CNNMoney has called it, "The elite 'Black Card' for entrepreneurs." TechCrunch said it "gives entrepreneurs elite programs and networking traditionally reserved for execs of Fortune 500 companies."
Developed in 2009 and launched in January 2010 by entrepreneur Eric Kuhn, FoundersCard is an elite members' card that offers a truly valuable range of global benefits to its cardholders, including upgrades and discounts with select airlines, such as Virgin Atlantic, Cathay Pacific and Jet Blue; international networking events in cities such as Los Angeles, New York and London, with high-achieving entrepreneurs and accomplished individuals in technology and media; a discount on AT&T iPhone bills (based on minimum criteria for the data plan, etc); and even a special arrangement when you open a new account with First Republic Bank.

Members speak very highly about FoundersCard, with many stressing the benefit of the Founders Events even above the generous discounts and upgrades the card offers.
These offer the chance to meet with startup founders, entrepreneurs and CEOs, and to talk to dynamic innovators you might otherwise not have access to. I was first made aware of FoundersCard by a post by David Marcus, the president of PayPal, on LinkedIn.
If you are interested in applying for a FoundersCard, visit their webpage. Their Manager of Member Services, Scott Poniewaz, is extremely courteous and helpful in answering any questions you may have about the card.
