The Founder Institute is the world’s premier idea-stage accelerator and startup launch program. Through a challenging and rigorous curriculum, we provide early-stage and aspiring entrepreneurs with the structure, training, mentor support, and global network needed to start an enduring company. In addition, the Founder Institute is the only program of its kind that accepts founders with day jobs and shares equity with all participants.

If you are ready to make several years of progress on your startup in just 3.5 months, then apply below today. 

Who Should Apply?

This includes aspiring founders with a full-time job, solo founders, teams, and founders of established companies that are pre-funding.
