The Founder Institute is committed to narrowing the gender gap in high tech startups. When we announced the Female Founder Fellowship program in 2011, only 16% of Founder Institute companies were founded by females. Since then, the results of this program have been astounding, as our overall number of female-founded companies has increased over 70%, to a total of approximately 35%. This is more than twice as high as most other accelerators. Learn more about the Female Founder Fellowship program here
