Lima Founder Institute Final Applications Due Sunday!

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2014-03-14

Join us this Summer and launch a company in Lima with the Founder Institute!

Applications to the Lima Summer 2014 Semester close this Sunday (2014-03-16).

If you could use expert training and advice to launch a technology startup in Lima, then apply today.

In the Founder Institute's four-month, part-time program, promising startup entrepreneurs “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. Plus, aspiring founders are not required to quit their day job to participate, so they can begin building a business around their ideas without putting their livelihood at risk.

In only 7 years of operation, over 2,002 graduate companies across 135 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. 

The Founder Institute's method of identifying "Entrepreneur DNA", and our upcoming semester, was recently covered by Jose Martin in an article on Pulsosocial titled [Infografía]: ¿Tienes ADN Emprendedor?.

The Lima Chapter will begin 2014-03-24, and will be led by local leader Marcos Polanco, a serial entrepreneur who has previously served as the Director of the Puerto Rico Founder Institute as well as one of Silicon Valley’s highest rated mentors.
