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.

Sprouter’s Hot #Startup of the Week: @Realty_Mogul

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-01-09

Realty Mogul, a graduate of the Los Angeles Founder Institute has been named one of Sprouter's Hot Startups for the week of January 11, 2013. Realty Mogul simplifies investing in private real estate by connecting investors to properties throughout the US. After pooling contributions from investors (as little as $10k), the funds are either put towards loans for renovations and remodels, or equity purchases for commercial buy and hold.

While every investment is risky, Realty Mogul provides increased transparency into the investment and allows the investor to choose specific properties in a desired location. The platform also enables investors to monitor their money 24/7 and track its growth over time.

In addition to graduating from the Founder Institute, co-founders Jilliene Helman and Justin Hughes have also gone through the Windows Azure Accelerator, powered by Tech Stars. The team was recently featured on the Microsoft Biz Spark Blog to provide a few bits of advice for others considering applying to the program.
