Founder Institute Image

Founder Institute, the world's largest pre-seed startup accelerator, is proud to announce the newest Alumni from the Eastern Europe Virtual 2021 program.

Over 200 people applied to the program, and after an intense four months of aggressive business-building sprints and constant evaluation and feedback from investors and mentors, just eight Founders and six companies were able to make it through. We are also proud to share that we have 62% out of the Alumni Founders are Female Founders.

Each of these Founders have demonstrated a high level of perseverance and creativity, and their businesses have been thoroughly vetted and supported by a panel of Eastern Europe's top startup experts and investors.  

And now, without further ado, we present the Alumni of the Eastern Europe Virtual 2021 accelerator: 

The Eastern Europe Virtual 2021 program would not have been possible without help, because it truly takes a city to raise a startup. We would first like to thank the Local Leaders of the Eastern Europe Founder Institute: Janet TodorovaAlex M. Dascalu, Bozhidar Georgiev, and Tatyana Mitkova. Our Local Leaders play an incredibly important role in building the local Founder Institute program, and creating an environment and regional network that is conducive to building great companies.
