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.

Berlin Grad, Itembase, Lands a $3.25 Million Round Led by Former Skype Investor, Morten Lund

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-10-24

Berlin Founder Institute graduate, Itembase, recently announced they have received a $3.25 million funding boost from former Skype investor, Morten Lund. In addition to backing the personal inventory platform, Lund is also assuming the role of Chairman of the Board.

“I think this is way more interesting than eCommerce – since that is soon (or already) red ocean”, said Lund. “At Itembase, we can help eCommerce shops to diversify and stay unique before the big players eat them alive.”

Itembase helps users organize their purchases, automatically creating a personalized inventory of manuals, receipts, and other important product information. The Berlin-based company recently opened offices in San Francisco, and plan to continue their US expansion with their new round of funding.

For more info on Itembase, check out the full story by Michelle Kuepper on Venture Village.

Itembase is a graduate of the Berlin Founder Institute, which is now accepting applications for the upcoming Autumn 2013 Semester. If you could benefit from expert training and advice to launch a startup in Berlin, click here to learn more and start your application today.
