The Founder Institute has a vision to launch over 1,000 meaningful and enduring technology companies per year by identifying strong candidates with limited or no entrepreneurial experience, and turning them into strong startup founders through a four-month training program.
In order to reach this scale, Adeo Ressi (Founder & CEO of the Founder Institute) hypothesized that a short, objective test could predict the likelihood that any person could build a successful technology company - regardless of their locale, profession, race, or demographic. For the last five years the Institute has been working closely with respected social scientists to develop such a test - a “Predictive Admissions Test”.
To date, over 20,000 people have applied, and the Founder Institute has graduated over 1000 technology companies across 6 continents. The test takes about an hour to complete, and it includes a battery of personality and aptitude evaluations. Applicants are not required to submit their business ideas.
