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.

2013 Recap: The 10 Best Pieces of Advice for Aspiring Entrepreneurs
Launching a startup is no cakewalk. From determining how to set up your company to snagging your first hire and figuring out how to scale, there is plenty of room for error. What makes some entrepreneurs' experience smooth sailing is taking the time to listen to people who have done it before.
A New Era for Entrepreneurs and Startups Has Begun
Since the recent recession, and at least partially sparked by it, I’m seeing a real resurgence of entrepreneurial spirit, and more startup activity than ever before. I believe the days of the “job work” mentality are thankfully waning, with more people looking to get satisfaction by making the world a better place, rather than just tolerating brain-numbing work to fund enjoyment elsewhere.
5 Sales Tips I Am Thankful For
The holiday season a great time of year to reflect on the people who have contributed to your success. Here is some of the great advice I have received from my advisers in the sales industry.
What You Really Need Is A Market, Not An Idea

I call this train of thought "Idea Roulette". The wheel of ideas in your head spins and spin and spins. There's excitement in the air as people cheer, cocktails splash out of glasses and someone drops their phone out of pure excitement. The yelling intensifies as the wheel winds down to its next choice. "This is it! This will be the one!" you insist. After all, after a few misses you deserve a big paycheck. And this spin "just felt right".
