The Founder Institute first launched in Sydney in 2012, with the help of Benjamin Chong (Partner at Right Click Capital, and still Co-Director of Founder Institute Sydney).
Since then, the program has expanded to four more cities across the country (Melbourne, Perth, and most recently, Brisbane/ Queensland), helping to build over 150 startups in the process. These companies are solving problems for people all across the globe; like making every car a 'smart-car', saving you money at the grocery store, helping you build business apps without code, and providing fun ways to teach kids math and technology.
