The FI Venture Network includes angels, accelerators, and VCs actively writing 'first or seconds checks' into startups across nearly every business vertical.
As the startup investment landscape becomes more specialized, it is critical for founders to target investors focused on their specific stage, business vertical, and geography.
Our network includes investors from 6 continents focused on founders at the earliest stages across nearly every business vertical, and FI Alumni have raised over $1.75BN in funding.
It all starts with our 'FI Core' accelerator, which pushes founders at the idea and pre-seed stages to reach milestones needed for investment and sustained growth.
When they are ready, Alumni of 'FI Core' get free access to our advanced 'Founder Lab' accelerators and work closely with our Silicon Valley team.
Fast-growing Alumni can get matched to investors in their sector and locale via a double-opt introduction. We make an average of 5-10 targeted intros per week.
The Founder Institute is the world’s most proven network to turn ideas into fundable startups, and startups into global businesses. Since 2009, our structured accelerator programs have helped over 6,800 entrepreneurs raise over $1.75BN in funding. Based in Silicon Valley and with chapters across 100 countries, our mission is to empower communities of talented and motivated people to build impactful technology companies worldwide.
