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.

Video: 12th Founder Showcase Runner-Up Pitch by SortBox

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2012-11-14

Congratulations to SortBox - Runner up at the 12th Founder Showcase Pitch Competition!

On Wednesday, November 7th, eight early-stage startup companies pitched on stage to a judging panel as well as hundreds of investors and press. While each company delivered riveting presentations, two startups stood out among the rest; winning both the audience vote and scoring the most points with the judges were Spikes and SortBox. In the end, although Spikes came out on top, the team at SortBox gave an intriguing and impressive presentation, resulting in high scores from the judges and an abundance of votes from the audience.
