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

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.

Adeo Ressi Interview with @BrianSolis: It’s Always Darkest Before the Dawn in Entrepreneurship

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2012-11-16

The Founder Institute's Adeo Ressi recently sat down in an interview with Brian Solis in his series Revolution to talk about his current and past endeavors as well as the basic premise of the Founder Institute. Based on Ressi’s reputation as an advocate for entrepreneurship and personal track record of founding 8 companies to date, Solis was intrigued with the tremendous amount of support Ressi has for the Silicon Valley community, and commended him on his ability to guide entrepreneurs to establish enduring and meaningful companies. 

When asked to share his best advice for budding entrepreneurs, Ressi reminded them to stay true to the mission and customer value, “It truly is always darkest before the dawn in entrepreneurship. Don’t throw in the towel even when it seems the worst…it’s part of the journey of success.” 

Ressi went on to say “You have to have deep and genuine love for everything that’s surrounding your business otherwise the hardship and struggle will just become unbearable...The biggest mistake I see entrepreneurs make is that they follow something they don’t truly love”.
