We believe that entrepreneurs can fix the world's problems, no matter how daunting or widespread the challenge may seem. 

As such, effective immediately we are offering "Public Health Startup Fellowships" to top Founder Institute applicants worldwide that are working on solutions to cure, prevent, and mitigate threats to public health. 

Through this program, anyone with a pre-seed startup or idea can apply to any Founder Institute global chapter for free below, and the best applicants building public health startups will be invited to participate in the program with zero course fee.

Interested applicants can apply to the Public Health Startup Fellowship here. 

The recent COVID-19 epidemic has been both tragic and alarming in the effect it has had upon humanity," says Adeo Ressi, CEO of the Founder Institute. "We need the best minds in the world working on ways to reduce the prevalence of these health crises for future generations.

The Founder Institute's mission is to empower communities of talented and motivated people to build technology businesses that positively impact the world. However, we too often watch talented entrepreneurs pursue ideas with low ambition. As the world becomes more connected and technology infiltrates the very fabric of our society, there has never been a better time for tech startups to make a difference and change the world.

Existing FI alumni building startups that can positively impact public health include Streamline Genomics (Montreal), Resistomap (Helsinki), KnowRx (Austin, U.S.), Doc-Doc (Bogota), Solvergen (Toronto), CapCell Biologics (New York), Endiatx (Silicon Valley), and many more.
