I'm Guy. I set up Founderoo as I love the stories of founders.

At twenty seven I started a cleaning company in Edinburgh, Scotland. Over eight years I grew to fifty full time employees with an annual turnover of £750,000.

It was the toughest and most exciting time of my life. Long story short, I liquidated the business in 2010 with a handful of companies owing me £120,000.

I was heartbroken, tired and unwell when it ended. Luckily I had my family and close mates to get me through.

I learnt many hard lessons, but I'm still in love with the battling founder. Only a founder knows what it's like to take the plunge.

If you know any Aussie businesses that have an inspiring founder story, email me at
