"FI helped me build my network when I moved to the U.S. from Turkey in 2008. I didn’t know anyone in Silicon Valley and started from scratch when I arrived. I met one of my co-founders, as well as one of our first angel investors, who was a mentor for the Founder Institute."Co-founder, Udemy FI Silicon Valley Alum
