Founders Suck At Grammar


I work on 20Skaters, ThreeFortyNine, Ontario Startup Train and a few others. My vanity site is

So founders suck at grammar, or at least I do. We host a weekly event in our space that we named Founder’s Club. It’s a peer based group of individuals who are starting something, or about to. Actually a lot of members are in between startups as well. Ultimately our event is group therapy for those of us crazy enough to attempt creating something from nothing.

We’ve been running this event weekly for a few years now. It was only yesterday that a new member informed me that our grammar was painfully incorrect….

“Founder’s club: Brydon’s club, Brydon’s a Big Founder, other people are invited.

Founders’ club: Everyone’s club, a bunch of founders get together, Brydon is just the guy who founded the Founders’ club

Big difference! I think you mean the latter, but you use the former spelling.”

So let it be known, we host Founders’ Club events here! Our founders have customers and revenue but we let some other things slide….like grammar.
