Our founder started this company to support extraordinary people, with big dreams and limited resources, gain access to opportunity. Day in and day out, we continue to drive that mission forward. And we’re pretty proud of that.
I'm on a mission to inject creativity into the mundane, find better ways of doing business, and inspire positive & lasting transformations for businesses, properties, and brands.
- Lauren Gund, Founder
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Lauren Gund is a creative executive who founded Helm & Forge based on a genuine understanding of what it feels like to desire something better, something more. While working for a global engineering firm, she realized there was a greater impact to be made right outside her door, by refocusing on the communities, residents, small businesses, and aspiring entrepreneurs. And this is how Helm & Forge was born — out of the idea that by teaching and empowering others to succeed independently, we can all rise together.
Over the course of her career, Lauren has worked closely with big businesses, local & state governments, and non-profits. She has developed a unique 360-degree view of industry practices and the need to transform them. Using this experience, Lauren has created an approach to delivering tailored solutions geared towards making a positive impact on the world in which we live, work, and play.
Lauren’s commitment is to celebrate diversity, facilitate creativity & joy, and ensure that Helm & Forge maintains integrity and authenticity every step of the way. This company is a true manifestation of her soul’s calling to create a better way of doing business – one that is more accessible, beneficial, sustainable, and fun.
