Now is the time to rebuild: the world needs entrepreneurs to lead the way in creating a better future, for everyone.

Whether you have already launched a startup or are still in the idea-phase, this is the time to act. 2020 brought havoc to our health, our society, and our economy, and what remains is a world filled with reshuffling industries and new problems that need to be solved. As we embark on 2021, we each have an opportunity to play a part in helping shape that better future.

That's why we are excited to announce applications are now open for the Washington DC Virtual 2021 program.

If you could use a structured process and a lifetime of support from Washington DC's top investors and entrepreneurs to build something meaningful, then apply to the Washington DC Virtual 2021 Founder Institute today.

Local COVID-19 Update: In an effort to #StopTheSpread and ensure everyone’s health and safety, this program is planned to be held online. Learn more on our Virtual Program FAQ page.

We will be hosting several free startup online events in Washington DC over the coming weeks, where you can learn virtually from top entrepreneurs from the comfort of your home:

Based in Silicon Valley and with chapters across 200+ cities worldwide, the Founder Institute is designed to help you build an enduring business that can survive and thrive in this “new normal.” We do this by giving you a clear process combined with constant feedback from a devoted network of international entrepreneurs and investors. Participants in the 4-month core program also get access to a lifetime of support through the Founder Institute's industry-leading free post-programs.

The Washington DC accelerator is led by some of the region's top startup leaders, including Brian BassettHank Yuan, and Michele Wright. In addition, some of Washington DC's top investors, entrepreneurs, and CEOs will be participating as mentors in the program, providing expert feedback and evaluation. 

Since 2009, the Founder Institute has helped over  4,500 Alumni raise over $950M funding, get into seed-accelerators, generate traction, recruit a team, build a product, transition from employee to entrepreneur, and more (see the FI 10 Year Impact Report here).

Join us in Washington DC to help build the future.
