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.

Brussels FI Grad @Twusic Partners with International Music Discovery Platform, @Deezer

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2012-12-03

Brussels FI grad Twusic is taking their love of music sharing to new heights. The Brussels based startup recently announced they will be partnering with Deezer, a music discovery platform similar to Spotify, to help build upon their new platform and enable users to share their favorite tunes via Twitter.

After a $130 million dollar funding this year, Deezer is gearing up to take music discovery and sharing to an international level with their new App Studio and platform "Open Deezer". Deezer's CEO Daniel Marhely commented, “In the last six months we have seen some excellent app ideas take shape, enabled by our open API. We particularly love the ones developed by bright sparks or young startups which are helping to enrich the music ecosystem."

With Deezer’s expansion comes 8 new apps to join them on iOS and Android platforms, one of which is Twusic. Each app will enable users to enjoy music in new and creative ways, ultimately creating a highly cohesive and interactive platform.

The team at Deezer says as the platform grows many more apps will be added. If you are interested in joining Twusic on the “Open Deezer” platform, submit your app through Deezer’s developer website and wait for the Deezer team’s prompt approval.
