Each week during the four month semester of the Institute, two or three successful startup CEOs have 30 minutes to present their views on a specific company-building topic. After the talks, all of the CEO Mentors take questions on the topic, followed by the "Founder Hotseat," where three program participants are quizzed by the Mentors about their business.

In many cases, the CEO Mentors reveal financial information and controversial opinions that they do not want shared publicly. As a result, the Institute does not publish any of the 30 to 40 talks throughout a semester. In a rare opportunity, the CEO of Mint.com, Aaron Patzer, a company that recently sold for $170 MM, re-used one of his two Founder Institute presentations at the Juice Pitcher event and gave permision to publish the footage. The topic is "Startup Accounting Tactics," and Aaron initially turned down doing this session. That would have been a mistake.

Below is a video that shows a small part of what the Founder Institute has to offer each week. Thank you, Aaron, and enjoy!
