Eric Rafat - Community Builder, Startup Founder, and SEO consultant

Growth Marketing. Startup Founder.

Hey there, I’m Eric. I’m a startup founder, community builder, and SEO consultant. I love building communities, covering startup stories, and helping founders build, grow, and scale.

I started building an online community for founders, while working on my first startup. This later became known as FoundersBeta. Besides startups, I love tennis, chess, and road trips. I’ve been playing tennis since I was four and reached as high as number forth provincially in Canada. I speak English, Persian, and French. If you’re building a startup or scaling and need helping with growth marketing, team building, or building your community get in touch.

FoundersBeta is an online community for founders to build, grow, and scale.
