Founder Institute Mentors

Frankfurt 2019

The Founder Institute carefully recruits 20-40 Mentors per semester, and we typically only accept Mentors that have built or led fast-growth technology businesses.  

Our Mentors lead the weekly training sessions, and their mandate is to help our participants by sharing their experience, outlining the latest tactics, and providing critical feedback on your progress. In addition, through the Founder Institute's Equity Collective, Mentors are invested in the success of your company both during and after the program, and many have become formal advisors and investors to our Graduates.
