As part of the Founder Institute’s new series of free online startup events for entrepreneurs practicing social distancing, we are pleased to welcome a panel of Founder Institute graduates on Wednesday, May 27th (11am PDT) for a live Q+A panel with Founder Institute program alumni.

Alumni of the Founder Institute pre-seed startup accelerator have raised nearly $1 billion in funding and are building some of the world's fastest growing technology businesses. Join us for an interactive, online Q&A event where you can learn the tips and tricks to building a startup, ask the alumni about their experience in the FI program, and what you can expect to achieve in a startup accelerator. This event will be hosted by Ryan Micheletti (Head of Global Operations at Founder Institute, and Co-Director of the Silicon Valley FI Program).
