Why Builders

We learn as we grow

Our processes come from years of learning, iterating and re-learning. At the centre of the Builders Universe is a living, breathing playbook that is a sum total of all our learnings over the years. This serves as a stellar resource for expert guidance every step of the way in your journey with us towards building evergreen ventures for the future of work and living.

Everything’s on Notion

Management, founders, core team or trainees; it doesn't matter who we are, we pride ourselves in being able to hold transparent communication with each other. All-hands-on-deck Mission Control and the monthly Big Bang are a few of the all-inclusive initiatives. After all, we’re all here for the same purpose - to build evergreen software ventures as a team.

Tools take us forward

We aren’t worried about technology replacing humans; instead, we celebrate the innovation that the collaboration between tech and people can bring about. Be it noting down your 7-pm thoughts or creating a deck for investors, Builders has an army of more than 25 best-in-class tooling for the A-Z of venture-building.

Diversity is our pillar of innovation

We strive to create an environment where diverse people, perspectives, experiences and opinions are celebrated. We know that everyone works and thinks differently; this is why we map the personalities of team members using psychometric tests and encourage developing a personalised way of working so everyone feels at home at Builders.
