The Founder Institute hosted a successful interactive webinar event on the topic of Making the Leap from Employee to Entrepreneur, on the 23rd of November. This successful global event was hosted by Martín Martinez, Martín is the Executive Director for FI Texas. He has been involved with the FI ecosystem since 2017 and helped hundreds of founders navigate their startup journey.

The event facilitated entrepreneurs who want to start their own technology company but don't know where to get started! Millions of people every day go to jobs they don't enjoy, but few do something about it. And for those few people like you, this event was a great opportunity to listen to the experiences of people who have made the transition. Attendees even discussed questions and concerns they had and shared their ideas with other aspiring entrepreneurs in a networking session held afterward.
