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.

At our 11th Founder Showcase event, keynote speaker, Aaron Levie, Founder and CEO of Box, provided guests with an insightful look at the future and consumerization of enterprise, the endless possibilities surrounding disruption in the mobile marketplace, and how Box has the potential to become a monolith in the cloud space. In this talk Levie also explains how he approaches the marketplace, and finds it valuable to think about the core of your business through the lens of a b2c model. Levie believes strongly in keeping the end user at the core of any business, as they are ultimately the deciding factor of any company’s success. 

Aaron views end-user virality as a distribution model and starting point that was critical for Box’s ability to compete with larger companies. That along with a strong, focused team are key tenants that helped drive Box to becoming one of the most successful, fastest growing companies in Silicon Valley.

To hear more from Aaron Levie and his thoughts for both the future of Box and the enterprise software market, watch the interview with Levie and Michael Copeland below;
