"The first time I was traveling and staying in really nice hotels was during the road show when we were taking our first company public," CEO Eric Kuhn tells partner Business Rockstars. "I remember finding out the incredibly low hotel rates our investment bankers were securing for us ... but we didn't have access to these rates. I thought it was crazy that the larger, Fortune 500 companies and investment banks could benefit from these great privileges and perks, but the entrepreneurs were left out."

That realization became the inspiration for FoundersCard, a membership program that offers entrepreneurs private member rates at top hotels, flight discounts, exclusive networking events and more.
