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: Justin Moore on Establishing a Great Company Culture - Interview by @Kymbee

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2012-11-16

Kym McNicholas of PandoDaily has recently been following the topic of company culture and wrote an article this past week entitled “World’s Best Multinational Workplaces 2012”, featuring an interview she conducted with Justin Moore of Axcient at the 12th Founder Showcase. As the Founder and CEO of the seventh fastest growing company in Silicon Valley, Justin shared some great insights on how to create a great culture from day one.

Having learned from his own experience with starting two highly successful companies, Justin is a firm believer in the idea that a company's culture is the foundation for which growth can take place. A great culture doesn’t just happen by accident; to build an incredible culture you have to put an extraordinary amount of effort into it. Consistency, systemization, and clear company values and goals will lead to the establishment of a great team.

In the article Kym also mentions SAS, the world’s largest private software company, which topped the list this year of best places to work. The team at SAS attribute's their success to putting employees first. They say the key to creating positive company culture isn’t dependent on office perks, but instead relies heavily on ensuring company loyalty and establishing an environment of value and respect.

Be sure to watch the video below for more great insights from one of Silicon Valley’s greatest business leaders and check out the full article on PandoDaily for more on company culture.
