citizenM launches open call for its first Founders First program

New initiative celebrates and empowers small business owners in underrepresented communities by offering inclusive programs and co-working benefits for all

Jun 11, 2024

citizenM, a hotel brand built for entrepreneurs and creatives, today announces the launch of its inaugural Founders First program - an initiative designed to support the growth of small businesses, with a special focus on underrepresented communities.

Key takeaways

  • The launch coincides with the introduction of citizenM's new co-working benefit to meet the growing demand for flexible workspaces and on-the-go solutions;
  • Founders First will offer LGBTIQA+ founders the opportunity to receive a two-year mycitizenM+ membership for themselves and their teams of up to 10 pax (which includes access to free co-working at any of citizenM's 34 hotels worldwide), as well as the chance to showcase their product or service at its flagship hotels;
  • The initiative stems from citizenM's celebration of individuality, creative expression and freedom, and its firm belief in the importance of honoring and championing the LGBTIQA+ community.
