Views of an Accepted Founder, by Roy Leban

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2009-11-25

Roy Leban wrote an in-depth blog post about being accepted into the Founder Institute and his decision to enroll. It provides an interesting insights from the perspective of an experienced entrepreneur and technologist. A snippet from the post is below.

At first glance, I might not seem like the typical candidate for the Founder Institute. I'm not a fresh entrepreneur. I've been doing it a long time and I've had both favorable outcomes (sales) and failures (losing a lot of money). And I even serve as an advisor and mentor to a lot of other entrepreneurs. But, through it all, two things have remained constant: I'm an entrepreneur at heart, and I have a lot to learn.

And those two things are the key reasons that I'm excited that I just got accepted to be part of the Founder Institute's winter session in Seattle.

The Institute has now accepted 100 Founders across the five semesters, and more acceptances are underway. There are 103 Mentors, with another 30 Mentors expected.

Welcome, Roy!
