This Sunday, February 24th is the Early Application Deadline for the Spring 2013 Silicon Valley Founder Institute. If you or someone you know could benefit from expert training and feedback to launch a technology startup in Silicon Valley, then click here to apply today.

Those who apply by this Sunday's Early Application Deadline get to take the Predictive Admissions Test for free (it is typically $50), and are also eligible to receive one of several Founder Institute Fellowships.

Through the Founder Institute's part-time, four month program, existing and prospective founders can launch their dream company with expert training, feedback, and support from experienced startup CEOs - while not being required to quit their day job. Our unique Graduate Liquidity Pool also enables graduates and mentors to share in the equity upside of each class, creating strong teamwork-based startup ecosystems where great companies can flourish.
