The majority of Founders that apply and enroll in the Founder Institute do not have a polished business idea. The first 30-45 days of the program is dedicated to ideation, where Founders are pushed to refine and defend a set of ideas that they are passionate about.

In the following 17 minute video, Adeo Ressi, CEO of the Founder Institute presents a five step process to develop a great startup idea. The premise is that great ideas are raised rather than born.



The five steps are quickly outlined below:

  • Step 1 - The Seed: Find a passion or pain point as a seed for a bigger idea.
