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.

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-09-01

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

This week's top articles include a no-nonsense cheat sheet for running your business, how to take action and move beyond the planning stage, and how to get through the inevitable tough times starting up.

The Ultimate Cheat Sheet For Starting and Running Your Business
There are many types of business. Depending on your business, some of these won’t apply. All of these questions come from questions I’ve been asked.

The rules are: I’m going to give no explanations. Just listen to me.
Stop Planning. Start Doing.
Just because you’re great at planning, doesn’t mean you’re actually getting anything done. The most successful people — entrepreneurs, business owners, and even everyday professionals — are those who actually make things happen. In fact, if you’re spending the majority of your day planning, you may be sabotaging not only your productivity, but also your career.
4 Steps to Bounce Back From Failures
You and I know that failures are part of the journey. At the recently concluded Inbound Conference, Seth Godin said, "If failure is not an option, success is not an option either." Failure and success are like two faces of the same coin. Then it seems like a mystery when you see someone struggling to bounce back from a failure.
How to Get Through Founder's Despair

This start-up stuff is really hard, right? Are you starting to wonder whether yours will work? Is doubt creeping in? Are the conversations between you and your cofounder(s) moving from spirited to…weary? Do you find yourself just a little less focused than you were a few months ago?
