Leaders of the world’s fastest-growing startups have used our program to transition from employee to entrepreneur, test their startup ideas, build a team, get their first customers, raise funding, and more. 

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?

The Founder Institute focuses on founders instead of ideas. In fact, you are not even required to tell us your idea to apply. If you are talented and motivated to do the work required to build an enduring tech or tech-enabled company, then we want to hear from you. This includes aspiring founders with a full-time job, solo founders, teams, and founders of established companies.
