The Founder Institute, the world's largest entrepreneur training and startup launch program, is now accepting applications for over 25 cities worldwide. Since launching in 2009, the Founder Institute has helped launch over 1,250 companies that have created over 20,000+ jobs, and we excited to launch many more.
The Founder Institute is a part-time 4-month entrepreneur training and startup launch program, with chapters in over 155 cities worldwide. Without being required to quit their day jobs, promising startup entrepreneurs can “learn by doing” and launch a company through structured training courses, practical business-building assignments, and expert feedback from a large network of business mentors.
Over 1400 Founders have used the program to transition from employee to entrepreneur, form and improve their business ideas, develop their marketing strategy, create an advisory board, recruit co-founders, improve their pitch, launch a product, prepare to raise capital, bootstrap to profitability, generate revenue, and more.
