Posted by Joe Garza on 2014-07-25

Join us this Summer and launch a company in Berlin with the Founder Institute!

Applications to the Berlin Fall 2017 Semester are due very soon (2017-10-01). 

If you could use expert training and advice to launch a technology startup in Berlin, then apply today.

In the Founder Institute's four-month, part-time program, promising startup entrepreneurs “learn by doing” and launch a company through structured training courses, practical business-building assignments, and expert feedback from a large network of business mentors. Plus, aspiring founders are not required to quit their day job to participate, so they can begin building a business around their ideas without putting their livelihood at risk.

In only 8 years of operation, over 2,300 graduate companies across 170 cities have used the Founder Institute to validate their idea, develop their plans, refine their product, build an advisory board, prepare for seed funding, and more. 

Leading the Founder Institute’s efforts in Berlin are Didier Vermeiren, founder of SmartCheckups; and Sascha Karstaedt, founder and CMO of Carving Dreams.
