Get Help Building a Company in Berlin from Top Local Entrepreneurs

Posted by Joe Garza on 2014-07-24

In the Founder Institute's four-month, part-time program, promising startup entrepreneurs participate in weekly training and feedback sessions that are led by Founder Institute Mentors. 

Our Mentors provide the passion, experience, and support that helps our Founders launch meaningful and enduring companies.

Rather than bringing in consultants and academics who teach theory, we bring in experienced Founders and CEOs to give our companies the most relevant and valuable advice. In a confidential setting, they share horror stories, best practices, and realistic feedback to help our Founders avoid "rookie mistakes" and be successful.   

In the upcoming Berlin Spring 2015 Semester, we have secured a truly exceptional roster of Founder Institute Mentors, including many from out of town.
