Road Trip! Founder Institute’s Adeo Ressi to Tour European Chapters
As reported by Robin Wauters of The Next Web, the Founder Institute has more than doubled its presence across the continent with the launch of five new chapters this Autumn. Joining the existing Paris, Brussels, Berlin, and Amsterdam chapters will be programs in Zagreb, Helsinki, Istanbul, Rome, and Kyiv, all of which are accepting applications for the upcoming Autumn semester.
In order to help kick off the Founder Institute's massive expansion in Europe, the Institute's Founder, Adeo Ressi, will embark on a tour of the continent beginning next week. During his trip, Adeo will host several events, take part in the training sessions of already operating chapters, and meet with local founders, mentors, and media for office hours.
In the short video below, Adeo shares quick bits of advice for both first-time and seasoned entrepreneurs. For example, Adeo stresses the importance of properly researching and planning your business, and having a burning passion for your venture from the very begginning. As he puts it, "you better love what you're doing, because it is going to be brutal. You wouldn't treat an animal the way a founder gets beaten upon."
