Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-11-15

The Founder Institute, the World's Largest Startup Accelerator, is currently testing demand to run a New York Semester for the Winter of 2013. 

In only 6.5 years of operation, over 1,850 graduate companies across 100 cities have used the Founder Institute to validate their idea, develop their plans, refine their product, build an advisory board, prepare for seed funding, and more. If you are interested in launching a company this Winter in New York, then fill out an Interest Form today.

The Founder Institute is a comprehensive, 4-month entrepreneur training and startup launch program. 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. The Institute has helped launch over 1,850 new companies across 100 and six continents, and has been featured in the New York Times, Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, and more.

The Institute will be hosting a number of free events in New York for people to meet local entrepreneurs and learn more about the program.
