Female Founder Fellowship

The Female Founder Fellowship is awarded to the most extraordinary female applicant for each semester, giving them the opportunity to participate in the Founder Institute for free. The recipient will be recognized as a female with the utmost potential to become a successful technology entrepreneur.

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 more than doubled, to a total of approximately 33%. This is more than twice as high as most other startup programs. Learn more about the Female Founder Fellowship program here

Eligibility: In order to be eligible for the Female Founder Fellowship for the upcoming semester, you must complete your application, be accepted to the program, and submit your payment by the Early Deadline listed on the top of this page. Any female who follows these guidelines will be automatically eligible - no further steps are required. 

Grant: The Female Founder Fellowship is awarded to the most extraordinary female applicant for each semester. The recipient will be awarded and notified within 5 days after the Early Admissions Deadline, and they will receive a full refund on their Course Fee within 1 week of the program start date. All applicants will be notified via email when the Fellowships are awarded.

Los Angeles Grad, Realty Mogul Launches Its Crowdfunding Platform and Raises $500k

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-03-20

Los Angeles real estate crowdfunding platform, Realty Mogul has been moving at lightning speed ever since founder, Jilliene Helman decided to quit her job and pursue the concept full time. As an alumni of two startup accelerators (The Founder Institute and Microsoft Azure), a winner of a major pitch competition, and featured articles in several tech publications, Realty Mogul has seized every opportunity that's come their way.

Today, it looks like all their hard work has paid off. TechCrunch announced the launch of the Realty Mogul platform as well as a $500k seed round from Gust CEO David S. Rose, Gordon Stephenson (who’s on the board of directors at Zillow), and serial entrepreneur Sky Kruse. Although today marks the official launch, Realty Mogul just completed its first project  — AH Capital used the site to raise $110,000 to purchase and rehabilitate a duplex in Los Angeles.

Staying true to their “grow as quickly as humanly possible” mantra, the startup will also be participating in next week’s Founder Showcase Pitch Competition. To see what Realty Mogul has in store for Wednesday’s event, purchase your tickets to the March 27th showcase where Helman and the team will battle it out on stage with 7 other startup hopefuls.
