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.

Posted by Joe Garza on 2014-03-11

It's been a big week for iGenApps: they were recently selected as a finalist at SXSW Interactive's New Product Launch Competition, and were soon after announced as part of the third installment in RevTech Labs' accelerator program.

Norman Ortiz, the founder and CEO of iGenApps, is a Graduate of the San Juan Founder Institute.

iGenApps caused quite a stir at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, where their groundbreaking new system, which allows users to quickly and easily create their own personalized apps with mobile devices, was showcased at ReleaseIt, SXSW's new product launch competition. Hailed as one of the most innovative startups in the industry, iGenApps has won first place in the International CTIA Big Idea Contest, the Cloudmob iOS Mobile Platform Challenge, and the UNE Patent Competition.

Following up on their success at SXSW, iGenApps has been admitted into the third class of RevTech Labs, a 12-week accelerator program aimed to boost area startups and attract early stage companies from around the country. They will be joined by Innovance and SavedPlus from the San Francisco Bay Area, Paradine from New York City, WeRx.org from Miami, and others.
