Founder Institute Image

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

Over 450+ prospective founders applied to join the program, and after an intense four months of aggressive business-building sprints and constant evaluation and feedback from investors and mentors, just 20 companies were able to make it through. 

Each of these entrepreneurs have demonstrated a high level of perseverance and creativity, and their businesses have been thoroughly vetted and supported by a panel of Silicon Valley's top startup experts and investors

The SV Virtual 2022 Alumni invite members of the startup community and public to join them live on Thursday, May 19th for a special online graduation event featuring keynote speaker Taj Adhav, CEO of Leasecake, an FI Silicon Valley 2019 Alumni who just recently closed a $12M Series A!

And now, without further ado, we present the new Alumni of the Silicon Valley Virtual 2022 accelerator program: 

The Silicon Valley Virtual 2022 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 Silicon Valley Founder Institute: Mercedes Bankston (Founder, Jump Start VC), Russell Brand (Managing Director, Responsible Solutions Limited), Ryan Micheletti (Head of Global Operations, Founder Institute). Our Local Leaders play an incredibly important role in building the local Founder Institute program, and creating an environment and network in Silicon Valley that is conducive to building to great companies.
