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.

The 11th Founder Showcase in July featured on-stage interviews with top entrepreneurs and technology journalists. In the talk below, Farhad Manjoo of Slate interviewed Kevin Rose of Google Ventures. Kevin speaks candidly about his career as an entrepreneur turned investor. He discusses the lessons he learned early on as a first time entrepreneur and the challenges of investing at the seed stage. 

Kevin is currently a Venture Partner at Google Ventures. He also co-founded Milk, was the founder of Digg, co-founder of Revision3, and Pownce (now Six Apart). In addition, he was named on Bloomberg’s list of “Top 25 Angel Investors,” Time’s and BusinessWeek’s lists of “Top 25 Most Influential People on the Web,” and MIT’s list of “Top 35 Innovators under 35.” 

Farhad wrote about the interview here on Slate. You can watch the full video below; 



Special thanks to Farhad, Kevin, and Google Ventures for participating in the event. The next Founder Showcase is now scheduled for November 7th, 2012 - reduced price tickets are available now
