Our vision is to Globalize Silicon Valley by creating and fostering local startup ecosystems in promising markets across the globe. We aim to help launch 1,000 technology companies per year in over 75 cities worldwide.
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.
