Membership

We are a uniquely curated community offering education, strategic mentorship, and financial resources that will support the sustainable growth of your business. Membership in the BrainTrust Founders Studio provides access to a scalable, community-based investment ecosystem that unlocks much-needed resources and opportunities for entrepreneurs.

We offer three types of membership and are open to all Founders who meet our criteria.
