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 2013-08-18

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

This week's top articles include 57 must-read startup lessons, startup misconceptions explained by Richard Branson, why no one cares about your ideas, and more.


Check out our must read articles for the week of August 12th - August 18th:

57 Startup Lessons
There are already very good lists of startup lessons written by really talented, experienced people. I’d like to add another one. I learned these lessons the hard way in the past four years. If you’re starting a company, I hope you have an easier path.
Why No One Cares About Your Ideas - And How to Change That
Say you had an idea for a great new business, if only you could deliver a crackling pitch in eight minutes or less. That’s the challenge entrepreneurs face when luring squinty-eyed investors—but it’s also a useful way to think about selling any idea at work. The trick is spooning out information in a way that lets an audience naturally absorb and retain it. That, and plenty of practice.
The Misconceptions of Entrepreneurship
In the past few decades entrepreneurship has been transformed from a dirty word into one of the most aspirational careers people strive for. So what does being an entrepreneur really mean? Richard Branson explains.
The Importance of Realism in Startups
It’s only 12 minutes long and if you’re a first-time entrepreneur (or second time, frankly) I encourage you to watch it if for nothing else than to get a sense that your struggles are universal, by Mark Suster
