The Founder Institute (www.fi.co/s/amsterdam
), the world's largest pre-seed startup accelerator, announced today that it graduated 16 founders and startup companies in Amsterdam, Luxembourg, and other parts of Europe. In collaboration with WomenTech Network
, the cohort shows an exceptionally high percentage of female-led startup graduates (65%). Industry leaders, media and investors are invited to the graduation event on 27th May 2021 to learn about some of the pre-seed companies that will go onto seed-accelerators, raise funding, and build the next generation successful startups.
The companies graduating from the cohort of Founder Institute (FI) Amsterdam span across multiple industries such as Eco E-Commerce, FashionTech, FinTech, HealthTech, various sustainability solutions and more.
Many of the world’s fastest-growing startups have used the Founder Institute to transition from employee to entrepreneur, test their startup ideas, build a team, get their first customers, and raise funding.
In fact, there were over 1,300 applications and only 62 Founders were accepted and started the semester, and only 15 of those made it through. So, given the high dropout rate, it’s only fitting that we recognize those who persevered through the challenging weeks.
