Ok, we’re about to get real. Let’s talk about why I’m setting up this Patreon account.

There are so many people, companies, books, etc. trying to tell you how to lead (and be a leader) in these exponential times we are living in. I undoubtedly have encountered my fair share of it. From well-meant advice to people selling you snake oil. I am trying to cut through the noise for you — highlighting what worked for me. It's the reason why I created The Heretic, a place where we get to work, cut to the chase and get real.

A little bit about myself: I founded a couple of technology startups, led eBay’s Platform Solutions Group in Europe, launched a consulting firm helping entrepreneurs with their strategy & operations, invested into early-stage tech startups, led Mozilla’s Innovation Lab, created Mozilla’s accelerator program WebFWD, headed up Mozilla’s Office of the Chair and invested into social impact organizations around the globe at Google.org. I also founded the non-profit organizations Mentor for GoodThe Coaching Fellowship and the “GyShiDo” (Get Your S%#& Done) movement. Having a vast amount of experience I wanted to give a voice to my fellow entrepreneurs about what it’s really like being in this world and how to push through. Thus The Heretic was born.

I started The Heretic in 2012, and it now has nearly 1,000 posts and a book comprised of all the best posts. The Heretic has grown into a beautiful community of incredible doers, gravity-defying builders, heretical business leaders, corporate irritants and paradigm-shifting change makers. People like yourself. Through sharing my own experiences, the good and the bad, I hope to help inspire and motivate fellow entrepreneurs to get out there and show the world what you got!

Your support will allow us to bring more content faster. It will also help us create new ways to share stories, news, advice and everything entrepreneurship! I have some great ideas and can’t wait to keep The Heretic growing!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for any support, and I hope you become a part of this great community! And as a special thank you for all Patreons you will receive an invitation to our private WhatsApp community.

Pascal Finette,
Chief Heretic
Tiers
Pledge $1 or more per month
FRIENDS & FAMILY ROUND. How could you possibly launch a startup without the famed friends & family funding?! And as real friends you join the "inner circle" email list, which we’ll use when we need feedback or suggestions. We also will let you know about all the new things we’re cooking up and tell you about Pascal’s public speaking engagements. (This all goes for any pledge from $1 and up.)
Pledge $3 or more per month
ANGEL INVESTOR. Angel investors love doing their meetings in coffee shops. Buy us a cup of hot java at our favorite coffee shop in the Silicon Valley South Bay (check ’em out when you’re here: Chromatic in Sunnyvalle), keep us caffeinated and the words flowing.
Pledge $5 or more per month
SEED FUNDING. Seed funding allows startups to build real stuff. Your contribution will go towards paying for our servers and newsletter software – your five bucks make our infrastructure possible.
Pledge $10 or more per month
SERIES A. Pledging $10 or more a month puts you in serious money (and thus hero) territory. We all have a handful of monthly $10 costs, and we seriously appreciate you carving out one of yours for us.
Pledge $25 or more per month
SERIES B. Things get big and real now. Series Bs make startups soar — as does your contribution! Your generous contribution will allow us to build new stuff, of course running lean and building MVPs.
Pledge $100 or more per month
IPO. No site should ever expect this level of generosity from any reader, and if anyone decides to donate at this above-and-beyond level, just know that somewhere out there, we’re drowning in an uncomfortable amount of gratitude.
