Foundervine started in 2018 as a small group of founders that shared a passion for entrepreneurship and technology. This community has become an important place for founders to connect, learn, grow, and collaborate with each other.

As such, we wanted to introduce you to members of our team so you can get to know who we are, what we do, and how we can help you on your journey.

Laurin Donkor — Program Associate

What motivated you to join Foundervine?

The pivotal moment that sparked my journey with Foundervine traces back to my participation in a Model United Nations conference at the age of 13. That transformative experience ignited a passion within me to dedicate my time, expertise, and efforts towards initiatives aimed at making a meaningful impact in people’s lives. Since then, I’ve been committed to leveraging my skills and knowledge to contribute to organisations like Foundervine that are dedicated to creating positive change and empowering communities.

When you are not with Foundervine, what do you do?

When I’m not busy hustling with Foundervine, you’ll often find me embracing the “soft life” philosophy with gusto! I’m a firm believer in the concept of self-care and embracing a balanced lifestyle. During my downtime, you’ll often find me engaging in activities that help me recharge and rejuvenate. Whether it’s hitting the gym to stay active or following a dedicated skincare routine, I prioritise taking care of myself physically and mentally. It’s essential to find moments of peace and relaxation amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Any side hustles? What are the key things you want the Foundervine Community to know about you?

Aside from my main commitments, I dabble in freelance thesis reviews, leveraging my knack for comprehensive knowledge and insightful recommendations. Often dubbed as the go-to person for well-rounded advice or the ultimate source for the best recommendations, I find joy in curating experiences, whether it’s suggesting the perfect dining spot or uncovering hidden gems for leisure activities.

As for what I want the Foundervine Community to know about me, I’m passionate about fostering connections and sharing insights. My diverse interests and expertise extend beyond project management, enriching the community with varied perspectives and valuable contributions. So, if you ever need a trusted opinion or a curated experience, you know who to turn to!

What’s your plan for the next 5 years?

It’s ironic that despite my expertise in project management, I don’t have a concrete plan mapped out for the next five years. However, what I do hope to achieve is personal growth and fulfilment on multiple levels. Physically, I aspire to maintain a healthy lifestyle and prioritise my well-being. Mentally, I seek continuous development and growth, both in my career and personal life.

Ultimately, my overarching goal is to make a positive impact and help more people along the way, fostering meaningful connections and contributing to the betterment of those around me.

We’re building the greatest and most diverse community of digitally enabled businesses globally. Our plan over the next five years is to continue to grow a community just for you — one that connects you to people, networks, and knowledge that you need to grow a successful venture. We look forward to you joining the Foundervine Community. Sign up for our newsletter here!
