Specifically, we are looking to double our presence in Europe, and are also targeting new chapters across South America, Asia, and Africa.
If you would like to take a pivotal role in growing the startup ecosystem in your local city, then apply to be a Founder Institute Local Leader today.
The Founder Institute is an early-stage startup accelerator and global launch network that helps entrepreneurs create meaningful and enduring technology companies. Through a part-time four month program, existing and prospective founders can launch their dream company with expert training, feedback, and support from experienced startup CEOs - while not being required to quit their day job. Our unique Graduate Liquidity Pool also enables graduates and mentors to share in the equity upside of each graduating class, creating local, teamwork-based ecosystems where new businesses can flourish.
In just three years of operation, the Founder Institute has helped launch over 550 companies across 27 cities and five continents - making us the world's largest startup accelerator. Our goal is to "Globalize Silicon Valley" by launching 1,000 meaningful and enduring technology companies per year in over 30 cities worldwide.

The Institute provides the curriculum and all of the online tools necessary to run a fun and engaging chapter with as little administration burden as possible.
