What is the Founder Institute?

The Founder Institute is the world’s premier idea-stage accelerator and startup launch program. Through a challenging and rigorous curriculum, we provide aspiring entrepreneurs with the structure, training, mentor feedback, global network, and lifetime of support needed to start an enduring company. 

Many leaders of the world’s fastest-growing startups have used our program to transition from employee to entrepreneur, test their startup ideas, build a team, get their first customers, raise funding, and more.

Who Should Apply?

The Founder Institute focuses on founders instead of ideas. If you are talented and motivated to do the work required to build an enduring tech or tech-enabled company, then we want to hear from you. This includes aspiring founders with a full-time job, solo founders, teams, and founders of established companies that are pre-funding.

What to Expect?

The Final Admissions Deadline for the Location Forthcoming Semester is TBD. All applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so the sooner you apply, the better your chances of being accepted.

After completing the application below, you will be invited to take our Predictive Admissions Assessment, which is our main criteria for evaluating applicants. If you would like to learn more about our Admissions Process and review criteria, visit FI.co/admissions.
