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.

Are entrepreneurs born or made? Adeo Ressi weighs in on This Week in Startups

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-05-29

Earlier this month, Adeo Ressi sat down with Jason Calacanis of This Week in Startups to discuss the Founder Institute's unique method of measuring entrepreneurial success, and how his four year old company has managed to become the world's largest early-stage startup accelerator.

During their candid interview, Adeo explains how the Founder Institute is able to determine the success of any one person with over 85% accuracy. He says, throughout the Institute’s four years in operation, FI has gathered enough data to make surprisingly accurate evaluations of everyone involved in the Institute, including applicants, graduates, and even regional directors. One of the big finds; "attributes of successful entrepreneurs are more genetic than circumstantial", says Ressi, particularly one’s ability to adapt to new situations.
