Join us for the Germany Spring 2024 Graduation, where you can see an inspiring talk by Natacha Neumann and a few debut presentations from the new Alumni. Learn about some of the companies that will go onto seed-accelerators, raise funding, and build the next great Germany startups. There will also be an opportunity to network with other entrepreneurs and celebrate the new Graduates.
Want to be inspired by courageous entrepreneurs? Here comes your invite to experience them live:

On June 14th, 2024, we will gather graduates, mentors, investors, friends and future founders to celebrate the newest Graduates of the Spring chapter of the Founder Institute Berlin / Germany. In addition to the Graduation Ceremony, guests will be treated to short business pitches from the graduates.

ATTENTION: We will run this event as a hybrid event with the possibility to attend on site in Berlin! We will charge a small cover charge for snacks & 1 drink for those joining us on site! Please book your offline tickets here:   https://t1p.de/FIGraduation-Spring-2024-FICO 

We expect to see around 15 companies graduating from a wide array of topics ranging from making offline encounters fun again, a great solution to feed our aninmals better all the way to a platform that brings spare parts to the place they are needed in no time! This is the last chance to see the Spring 2024 cohort in its entirety and the first chance to see them as Founder Institute graduated companies!

But that is not all, as this marks a special occasion for the Berlin / Germany directors Rikke, Kai and Ferdinand, we aim to make this more special than special:
- We will all have supported more than 100 startups from inception to incorporation!
- We will have a wonderful moderator with us, Mia Heresch! She has been working with many media firms, in film productions and works intensely on sustainability and diversity & inclusion
- We will also have the infamous Bryoni Cooper with us with her band BC & the VCs, celebrating the new graduates and helping make the startup ecosystem more equitable!

The Founder Institute startup accelerator is an extremely challenging program, and graduating is a significant achievement. In fact, less than 40% of applicants are accepted to the program, and less than 30% of those generally make it through. Being a Founder Institute Graduate Company is a seal of approval, signifying that company's founders, mission, model, and plans are being validated by experienced startup CEOs. 

Who Should Attend?
Angel investors, early-stage venture capital firms, Founder Institute Mentors, Graduates, friends and family are all invited to attend. You are welcome to share this link with interested friends and colleagues. As we will announce opening of our next batch bound to start in March, entrepreneurs interested in founding a new company are also very welcome!
