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 Jonathan Greechan on 2012-11-02

Inside FI gives you exclusive access inside the training sessions of the Founder Institute. To get updates when we release new videos, follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our weekly newsletter here.

In this special edition of Inside FI, we bring you a segment from one of our favorite mentors and 12th Founder Showcase keynote, Justin Moore. In this video from the Silicon Valley Founder Institute, Justin holds nothing back as he tells founders some truths and tips on fundraising. Wholeheartedly admitting to the fact that fundraising is one of his least favorite things to do (as most founders would agree), Justin shares how he learned the secrets to doing it right and securing deals. 

To hear more from Justin, join us plus over 600 international investors and press at the 12th Founder Showcase where he will be speaking alongside David Sacks (Founder & CEO of Yammer). Less than 100 tickets remain – purchase yours today.

Justin Moore is a multi-time entrepreneur and recognized authority on cloud computing, SMB market strategy and entrepreneurship. As the CEO and Founder of Axcient, Justin leads the transformation of the data backup and business continuity industry to end data loss and IT downtime for businesses. Under Justin’s leadership, Axcient has been growing at a three-year rate of 2,462% – enough to earn the company Inc Magazine’s recognition as Silicon Valley’s #7 fastest-growing company.

We hope you enjoy the video below. You can also follow Justin on Twitter @justinrmoore.
