Select Portfolio Graduates

The Founder Institute's "Select Portfolio" is a designation given to the top 2% of Graduates from the world's premier pre-seed startup accelerator. 

Among the Founder Institute's 2,300+ Graduates across six continents, the "Select Portfolio" represents the "Elite" companies that have demonstrated strong early traction. These Graduates have been hand-selected by the Founder Institute as companies with the utmost potential to quickly scale and grow into an enduring, global business. 

In order to faciliate this growth, these Graduates will receive special assistance and increased support from experts at the Founder Institute's Silicon Valley HQ, including fundraising assistance, strategic advisory help, office hours, access to special events and partnerships, and more.    



Amidst the noise, the Silicon Valley FI team will help "Select Portfolio" Graduates focus their efforts and realize their potential.
