On Thursday, November 19th, the Founder Institute is hosting an informational event in Redmond. Anyone interested in becoming a world-class founder is invited to learn how the Institute will help them jumpstart their startup!
The Founder Institute is a four month training program for both new and seasoned entrepreneurs. The Institute prepares founders to lead the next generation of world-class technology companies across a wide range industries, from the biotech to the internet. Weekly company-building sessions are guided by experienced CEOs, and they are held in the evening to allow participants to keep their day job or develop their companies during business hours. All of the program stakeholders, from the participating founders to the experienced CEO Mentors, share in the upside generated by the companies formed during the program. Participants also enjoy free services from three dozen Institute Partners, fundraising opportunities at fair market value, and a teamwork-oriented environment to build a company.
After launching 54 companies in this summer's Bay Area Semester, the Institute is now opening its doors to the Seattle area for the Winter of 2009. Applications have already begun, and Institute sessions will begin in December. Apply for acceptance into the program below:
