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.

Posted by Joe Garza on 2014-07-16

Skimble experienced some recent successes which were highlighted by Aditi Pai in a MobiHealthNews article titled Workout app maker Skimble hits 14M downloads, partners with Samsung.

Skimble and its co-founders Gabriel Vanrenen and Maria Ly are Graduates of the Bay Area Founder Institute.

Based out of San Francisco, Skimble develops various themed workout training apps, including Coco's Workout World, Fitness Flow, and the GPS Sports Tracker, with each featuring unique routines. Skimble’s flagship app, Workout Trainer, consists of a veritable library of workouts that users can view as videos, photo instructions, and step-by-step audio guides. In addition to providing such workout routines as weight lifting, yoga, and running, the Workout Trainer also allows users to play music right from the app during their workouts and share their results on social media.

In 2012, Skimble reached an impressive 2 million downloads. Refusing to settle on past achievements, Skimble just hit a whopping 14 million downloads, and have followed up on their recent success by partnering with Samsung, in which Skimble’s Workout Trainer will be highlighted on all new Samsung Galaxy S5 and Tab S devices. The featured Samsung devices will offer users a six-month membership to Workout Trainer’s premium membership, which includes extra workout videos and training plans.
