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.

Startup Mentor Superheroes: The Top Founder Institute Mentors for 2012

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-05-20

Founder Institute Mentors provide the support, feedback, and guidance that helped our early-stage founders launch over 800 businesses since the Institute was founded in 2009.

Our awesome Mentors share best practices, difficult lessons learned, and provide invaluable feedback in our training program to help our enrolled Founders build the next generation of meaningful and enduring technology companies. When a founder is in need they come to the rescue... sort of like Startup Superheroes

While all of our 2500+ Mentors help our companies, among these great individuals, there are some that stand out.

Without further ado, we are happy to present to you the League of Extraordinary Mentors (aka: the 2012 Mentor Award Nominees).




Has one or more of these mentors impacted your business in a memorable way?

If so, we ask that you please share your experience (in just a sentence or two) on the Founder Institute's League of Extraordinary Mentors Facebook Album. Just click the photo of the mentor in the slideshow above and you will be redirected to Facebook.

The Awards will be handed out at the 14th Founder Showcase event, on Wednesday, July 17th, 2013.
