We have great news for aspiring technology founders in San Francisco - Adeo Ressi, Founder & CEO of the Founder Institute, will be leading an exclusive San Francisco Founder Institute semester this Summer!
After running several semesters of the Silicon Valley Founder Institute (based in Palo Alto) that launched over 100 companies, this will be Adeo's first semester in San Francisco. Why would Adeo run a chapter when the Founder Institute is aggressively expanding across the globe, you ask? In a word, it's demand. Our recently launched Silicon Valley Spring 2013 Semester had the highest number of San Francisco-based applicants that we have ever seen.
"Tech startups, and especially the best design talent, more and more are calling San Francisco home," says Adeo. "I want to help the many aspiring founders up there get off the ground."

Through our part-time four month program, existing and prospective founders can launch their dream company with expert training, feedback, and support from experienced startup CEOs - while not being required to quit their day job.
Previous Graduate companies of Adeo's program in Palo Alto include Udemy, Retailigence, Cake Health, Getable, Breezy, Shopalize, Skimble, Yumvy, Zirtual, Spikes, and many more.
