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

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.

Founded in 2009, InterConnecta makes it easy for IT product and service organizations to calculate costs, plan ahead, contract freelance sales and marketing professionals, and manage business campaigns in real time online.

InterConnecta also provides access to a network of IT sales, sales analysts, and marketing professionals with an average of at least eight to ten years of firsthand experience in the industry. Currently, the startup’s database includes over 3,000 verified contractors available for hire from anywhere in the world over the InterConnecta platform.

By helping IT organizations improve efficiency, InterConnecta reduces customer acquisition costs by over 50 percent and helps businesses get to market faster, according to the company.
