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.

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-01-31

Appota, a graduate of the Hanoi Founder Institute, was recently named Vietnam’s most promising startup at the HCMC Tech Startup Conference held on January 26th, in Ho Chi Minh City. The HCMC Tech Startup Conference is Vietnam’s first early-stage startup competition and attracted more than 200 local tech leaders.

Appota is a platform that serves mobile developers, content providers, advertisers and smartphone users in Vietnam. After having already been recognized as one of Vietnam’s most disruptive startups,  Appota made it through several rounds of elimination and was one of four remaining startups chosen to pitch on stage.

In addition to hearing Appota’s winning pitch, guests enjoyed a discussion about technology tends in Vietnam for 2013 from local leaders; Pham Hop Pho (Senior Associate, IDG Ventures Vietnam),  Phan Sao Nam (Chairman, VTC Online), Nguyen Manh Dung (Chief Representative, Cyber Agent Ventures), Pham Minh Tuan (Chairman, TOPICA Education Group) and Le Tran Bao Duy (General Partner, Vietnam Prosperous Investment Corporation).
