Adeo Ressi to Run the New San Francisco Founder Institute Chapter - Applications Open

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-05-01

We have great news for aspiring technology founders in San Francisco - Adeo Ressi, Founder & CEO of the Founder Institute, will be leading an exclusive San Francisco Founder Institute semester this Summer!  

After running several semesters of the Silicon Valley Founder Institute (based in Palo Alto) that launched over 100 companies, this will be Adeo's first semester in San Francisco. Why would Adeo run a chapter when the Founder Institute is aggressively expanding across the globe, you ask? In a word, it's demand. Our recently launched Silicon Valley Spring 2013 Semester had the highest number of San Francisco-based applicants that we have ever seen. 

"Tech startups, and especially the best design talent, more and more are calling San Francisco home," says Adeo. "I want to help the many aspiring founders up there get off the ground." 

If you would like to meet Adeo and learn more about the Founder Institute, join us at a free event: 

The Founder Institute is an early-stage startup accelerator and global launch network that, in just four years of operation, has helped launch over 800 companies across 42 cities and five continents. Through our part-time four month program, existing and prospective founders can launch their dream company with expert training, feedback, and support from experienced startup CEOs - while not being required to quit their day job.

Previous Graduate companies of Adeo's program in Palo Alto include UdemyRetailigenceCake HealthGetableBreezyShopalizeSkimbleYumvyZirtualSpikes, and many more.

If you could use expert training and feedback to launch a technology company in San Francisco, then apply now. Those who apply by the Early Application Deadline (May 5th) will have their application fees waived (typically $50) and are eligible for Founder Institute Fellowships.  

The San Francisco Chapter will take place on Monday evenings from June 10th to September 16th. During these four months, aspiring founders will learn how to evaluate their market, build a team, raise capital, and finally, launch a technology startup. Click here to see the full curriculum.
The program is open to existing and prospective technology founders of all kinds – with or without an idea, young or old, and with a full-time job or self-employed.
