At the Founder Institute, one of our core values is to not shy away from big challenges.
Every day we help and push founders to accomplish their own seemingly insurmountable challenge - to build an enduring technology company. So, it is only natural that we also push towards our own big challenges, and constantly work to preserve the startup mindset in our organization.
Our challenge, and our mission, is to “Globalize Silicon Valley” and empower talented and motivated people to build impactful companies that create one million jobs.
While seemingly insurmountable (borderline "crazy"?), we achieved a lot of milestones towards this mission in 2016, which you can see in a nifty "year in review" infographic we created below.
P.S. - Our work will never be done, so if you are interested in getting involved in any way, feel free to email us directly at regional (at) fi (dot) co, or apply to launch a company in our program.
