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.

This Week’s Must-Read Articles for Entrepreneurs

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-07-07

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

This week's top articles include Richard Branson's business tips learned from parenting, networking mistakes, why investors and entrepreneurs need to see eye-to-eye, and more.


Check out our must read articles for the week of July 1st - July 7th:

Naval Ravikant: Put Investors in the Same Frame of Mind
Entrepreneurs feel like they should spend a lot of time honing their pitch. Don’t do that.

Instead, understand your business and all of the surrounding issues — the microeconomics, customer adoption, distribution, etc. — well enough that you can express it succinctly, hit the highlights and understand the corner cases.
Starting a Business: Saying it vs Doing it
They say everyone has at least one business idea inside them but how many people actually have the conviction to follow their ambition?

Having an idea is one thing but what a successful business needs is competent execution and a receptive marketplace.
Richard Branson on Business Lessons From Parenting
Entrepreneurs sometimes look at me like I'm crazy when I talk about work-life balance and the importance of maintaining a rich personal life. But taking time away from the office isn't just a luxury -- it can be hard work.

The Networking Mistakes Most Entrepreneurs Make
Many budding entrepreneurs feel that the larger the size of their network, the greater their odds of success. Nothing could be further from the truth.
