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.

The Best Template for Providing Company Updates, by Adriana Herrera

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-05-08

Company updates are crucial for an early-stage startup, in order to help keep investors, potential investors, advisors, mentors, and other stakeholders informed of your progress, and engaged in your success.

Across the Founder Institute's 800+ companies we have seen many flavors of these updates, but bar none the most professional updates come from Adriana Herrera, Founder & CEO of Fashioning Change

This morning, Adriana shared her template for company updates in an article on the New York Times (where she is a regular contributor). We have encouraged all of our graduates to use this template, and we think it is very useful for any early-stage company with stakeholders. 

Fashioning Change, a Graduate of the San Diego Founder Institute, makes buying green easy by helping online shoppers make eco-friendly purchases without changing their online shopping behavior.

Read Adriana's full guidelines here, and see her template below.
