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.

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-02-10

As every semester comes to an end, we are excited to welcome hundreds of new founders to the FI family. In the past couple of weeks we have graduated founders from Silicon Valley, Seattle, New York, Washington DC, Croatia, Paris, Los Angeles, and San Diego; all of whom have launched meaningful and enduring technology companies. Mentor, Ziv Gillat (EyeFi) was lucky enough to catch this week’s Silicon Valley graduation - Click here to check out the photos he has graciously shared with the FI community!

Congratulations to all of our graduates. Your remarkable hard work and dedication is something to be proud of and we wish you the best of luck as you continue your entrepreneurial journey post- FI. We hope you continue to stay involved in the Founder Institute community and utilize your peers and resources as you build your companies.

This latest wave of Autumn graduates brings the number of Founder Institute companies over 750 - a feat we are incredibly proud of. This, however, is only the beginning. We will continue to expand in hopes of fostering hundreds, even thousands more companies, with the goal of improving the lives of billions of people worldwide.
