Founder Institute Image

The London Founder Institute, the local chapter of the world's largest pre-seed startup accelerator, is proud to announce the newest Alumni from the London Virtual 2022 program.

Over 250+ prospective entrepreneurs 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 thirteen companies were able to make it through. 

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 London's top startup experts and investors.  

The new FI London Alumni invite members of the local startup ecosystem and public to join them live this Thursday, July 28th for a special Graduation online event featuring a keynote with Techstars London MD Saalim Chowdhury, plus a few "debut" Alumni pitch presentations!

Without further ado, we proudly present the newest Alumni of the London Founder Institute program:

We would first like to thank the Local Leaders of the London Founder Institute: Mercedes BankstonColin Howes, Nadine Campbell, Osman Haneef, and Richard Cristina. Our Local Leaders play an incredibly important role in building the local Founder Institute program, and creating an environment and network in London that is conducive to building to great companies.
