At the Founder Institute, one of our core values is to not shy away from big challenges. After all, 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 2017. More importantly, our amazing Graduates made a ton of progress last year, with many companies raising money, winning awards, and generating significant traction.
We could never fit all the news into a single post, but below we created a nifty "year in review" infographic with some of the highlights. Happy New Year!
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.
