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.

DC Grad @Cont3nt Receives Funding From the Center for Innovative Technology

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2012-12-03

The Center for Innovative Technology (CIT) recently announced their plans to invest in Washington DC graduate, Cont3nt.com. Cont3nt.com is a real-time marketplace for breaking photo and video journalism, that allows photo and video journalists to sell their media to major news sources. The platform enables news sources to have immediate access to real-time content, while media companies, freelancers and citizen journalists can get paid and published.

With Cont3nt.com, media curators have the option to sell their content privately or publicly. After pricing and licensing their work, they can decide which media outlets to deliver to. When media companies receive a submission, they have the option to buy it, if interested.

Pete Jobse, CIT President and CEO, said, “Cont3nt.com's innovative technology allows journalists to upload and sell their digital media to news outlets instantly. Investing in this company will enhance the broadcast of news worldwide.”

Cont3nt.com’s CEO Anton Gelman said, “The Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street and the recent presidential elections have shown the power of real-time communications and citizen journalism, but today it’s still difficult for citizen journalists to earn money on even the most amazing content. We started Cont3nt.com to make it profitable to get your story to the world. With the support of CIT GAP Funds, we’ll be able to continue developing our product so that it becomes a ubiquitous global platform."

Tom Weithman, CIT Vice President and GAP Funds Managing Director, said, “We provide seed-stage funding to entrepreneurs like Anton Gelman because we believe in investing in groundbreaking technologies that will benefit long-term economic growth and jobs for Virginia.”
