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.

Each week we scour the web for insightful articles to share with the Founder Institute network.

Check out our must read articles for the week of June 3rd - June 9th:

Why Startups Need a Well Articulated Strategy (And How to Think About Yours)
Since Arrested Development is back I thought I’d resurrect Gob Bluth’s answer when he was told he needed a “business model” – he quickly figured out that he was missing one so he asked Starla, the Bluth company secretary, if she would be his business model.
Being an Entrepreneur When You're Not Extroverted
This is challenging in personal life, but as an entrepreneur — the face of your company, consistently pitching your wares whether they be services or a product— it can be downright exhausting. How is an introvert, ambivert, or anyone with introverted qualities to balance these social norms versus personal needs when it comes to owning your own business? And is there any way she can use them to her advantage?
6 Steps to a Smarter Start-Up
"Innovation for me is meaningful change," said the president of Frog Design during the Dell Women's Entrepreneurs Network on Monday. "It is about breaking rules. It's about making something that matters in the world. And creativity, well, that's the way you do it."
5 Tips on Staying Energetic as a Founder
I am approached a lot by curious people who wonder how I'm always able to stay "energetic". That my energy is contagious - that I'm constantly smiling. They almost don't believe it. People think I'm always on the go and that I never sleep. I'm here to debunk this and to share a few tips I've learned along the way to help maintain an energetic, healthy lifestyle while being a founder. Hope this helps.
