Great Startup Mentors Confirmed for the Singapore Founder Institute

Posted by Nailah Morgan on 2015-08-05

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 Singapore Summer 2015 Semester, we have secured a truly exceptional roster of Founder Institute Mentors, including many from out of town.
