Adeo Ressi’s Lessons from Running the Founder Institute
Adeo Ressi, the Co-Founder and CEO of the Founder Institute, appeared on an episode of This Week in Startups with investor, entrepreneur, and blogger Jason Calacanis. In this episode, Adeo describes what makes FI, which produces about 2,000 companies a year, stand out from countless other startup programs, including accelerators and incubators.
He also discusses the optimal qualities of strong entrepreneurs, and shares valuable lessons he has learned from running the company since 2009. Despite having launched several successful companies prior to founding the Founder Institute, Adeo Ressi proves that entrepreneurship will always be a lifelong lesson.
The reason why I started the Founder Institute is because it’s hard to be an entrepreneur. My vision was ‘Maybe if I can set something up that made it easier for people, it would be a win all around.’
