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.

Using Metrics to Get Investors On Board, by Eric Broughton

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-09-20

Inside FI gives you exclusive access inside the training sessions of the Founder Institute. To get updates when we release new videos, follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our weekly newsletter here.

The breadth of knowledge you have about your startup’s metrics and its place in the market is often a ‘make it or break it’ factor for most VCs. Knowing accurate statistics as well as how your company will perform, are key elements for every pitch deck and investor meeting. Without these, you probably won’t be taken seriously, says Eric Broughton.

Eric Broughton is the President and COO of YieldTechnologies, Inc. and  the Founder and Visionary behind RentSocial, a social renting site. Eric is also a mentor for the Chicago Founder Institute, which is currently accepting applications for the Autumn Semester.

In this video from the Chicago Founder Institute, Eric explains the fundamentals of startup research and which metrics VCs expect to see in your pitch deck and your team.

To hear more from Eric, apply now to the Chicago Founder Institute, where he will be mentoring this Fall.
Those who apply by this Sunday's Early Application Deadline (Sept 22) get to take the Predictive Admissions Test for free (it is typically $50), and are also eligible to receive one of several Founder Institute Fellowships.
