Refund Policy – All Foundr Courses
At Foundr, we are so confident that you will get results that we give you an entire calendar year (365 days) to complete the course, do the work and put what you’re taught to the test.
We want you to give your best effort to apply all the strategies taught in the course and give yourself the best chance at success, which is why if we don’t hold you accountable to putting in the work, we’re doing you a disservice.
This course has been stress-tested to make sure that as long as you follow the modules and complete the action items for each lesson, you will get results.
Which is why when you enroll in any of our courses as a student, you get a “365-Day Guarantee.” The guarantee states that if you enroll in one of our courses, watch all the video lessons, complete all of the required work and action items, and still don’t see results within the first year (365 days), we will provide a full refund.
Our 365-Day Guarantee is governed by the following terms.

You must include your completed coursework with your request for a refund, as well as the required assignments (specific to each course). If you request a refund and do not include your completed coursework by the 365th day, you will not be granted a refund.
If you haven’t completed the course or the required assignments, then you won’t be eligible for the guarantee. We’ll ask for your completed course work and ask what didn’t work for you (so we can learn and improve).

Upon enrollment, the Purchaser will be responsible for the balance of sale owing and must pay all further installments as agreed and on time. Should Purchaser fail to make any payment as and when due, we reserve all our rights against Purchaser for failure to make installment payments on time, including, but not limited to, mandating a collection agency or attorney to obtain payment from Purchaser, which may adversely affect the Purchaser’s credit rating.
