Join us in celebrating the future success of the New York City Summer 2016 Graduating Class!
The Founder Institute startup accelerator is an extremely challenging program, and graduating is a signifcant achievement. In fact, less than 20% of applicants are accepted to the program, and less than 40% of those generally make it through. Being a Founder Institute Graduate Company is a seal of approval, signifying that company's founders, mission, model, and plans as being validated by experienced startup CEOs.
On March 6, 2017, we will gather graduates, mentors, investors, and friends to celebrate the 14 newest Graduates of the New York City Founder Institute. In addition to the Graduation Ceremony, guests will be treated to short business pitches from the graduates.
