Comparing the Founder Institute to TechStars, by Scott Yates

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2010-03-18

TechStars is a great entrepreneurship program, and so is the Founder Institute. We both help grow and foster local start-up communities, but we go about it in different ways. Scott Yates, an accepted Founder in the Spring 2010 Denver Area Semester, has put up a very informative comparison chart on his blog to show the differences. Check it out here

The Application Deadline for Denver is Sunday, April 4th - you can apply here

Thanks Scott!
