About PFP

PFP is a place for talented professionals from various industries, to meet likeminded pre-founders with the drive to start or join new exciting projects and companies. You'll be given the chance to either work on your idea, or join a team where your background and skillset proves valuable. You may apply as an individual or together with a team, but each team member needs to fill in their own registration. Previous experience in tech and/or startups is not necessary.

Over the course of three short online sessions we let you dive headfirst into the basics of starting and building a successful startup. You'll also be given the tools to share, validate, and improve your ideas in between sessions as you get to know your fellow pre-founders. The session topics are as follows:

  • 04.12. 1st Session - Is My Idea Any Good?
  • 11.12. 2nd Session - Building strong teams and products
  • 18.12. 3rd Session - Fundraising

All sessions start at 1500 EET and are run over zoom. Reserve at least 90 minutes for each session. All participants will have individual calls with Icebreaker's team during the length of the program. You'll be given small assignments between the sessions, such as reading articles, connecting with your peers in the program, and working on your OKRs.Select individuals may receive support after the program. All selected participants automatically become Icebreaker community members, giving you full access to our community network.

Deadline to apply is December 1st. All accepted participants will be notified by then.

What's in it for you?

You will get access to our resources and professional feedback from a team of experienced investors, entrepreneurs and other pre-founders. All this and a ton of fun while connecting with people in the process, completely free of charge!

After the PFP you can continue your journey in the Icebreaker Community, getting to know new people at our re-occuring community events, and learning more about how to build strong tech companies.

Joining the Pre-founder project and the Icebreaker Community is ideal for those, who:


  • Have 5+ years of work experience in a specific field of expertise.
  • Want to start or join strong tech companies.
  • Want to test and improve their business idea in a safe environment.
