Anthony Ha, a reporter with VentureBeat, just published a detailed question and asnwer session on the Founder Institute: "The Founder Institute’s Adeo Ressi on his plans to leave no entrepreneur behind."

My favorite passage from the interview is:

What’s interesting is, my whole mindset shifted when the sessions started. The rallying cry of the whole program is now, “Leave no founder behind!” If you go into the program assuming a failure rate, it would be like teaching a high school class and saying, “Well, you know a lot of my kids are going to be drug addicts. I can’t do anything about it.” You want to enter with belief and the vision that 100 percent will be successful. My view is, I will not stop at anything until 100 percent of everyone who finishes the program is successful. I don’t see failure as an option or an acceptable outcome.
