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.

Establishing a strategy should always be your first step when starting anything, even the most basic of research. Knowing your game plan, targets to hit, customers to speak with and competitors to analyze should be outlined before making any big moves. In this talk from the New York Founder Institute, Andrew Lee says skip this step, and you’ll risk making a false start.

Andrew Lee is currently an Entrepreneur-in-Residence / Senior Adviser with the U.S. Small Business Administration where he focuses on high-growth startups. Additionally, he is one of the Founder Institute’s highest rated mentors, offering his startup insights everywhere from Los Angeles, Europe, Asia and more. This summer he will be mentoring with the Singapore Founder Institute, which is currently accepting applications.

Before finishing off his talk with a thorough Q&A session, Andrew explains why competitors and big markets are essential for your startup’s survival. He says, great surfers need great waves. Without them, it would be impossible to see their true talents.

To hear more great startup insights from Andrew, check out the video below and register today for the Singapore Founder Institute. Apply for free by this Sunday (April 7th) to qualify for Founder Institute Fellowships. Click here to learn more.
