We have already transitioned the program to virtual in 30+ cities around the globe (including our flagship Silicon Valley program), and the feedback has been very positive. The program quality is not changing.

In fact, Founders in programs that are going virtual will receive even more opportunities for collaboration, relationship building, and feedback when building their startup, such as;

  • More Office Hours Opportunities with Local Leaders and Mentors, and early access to our newly released Office Hours scheduling tool.  
  • Weekly AMA ("Ask Me Anything") Conference Calls and Private Webinars with the Silicon Valley FI Headquarters Team (including Adeo Ressi, CEO of Founder Institute), so you can get even more answers to the biggest questions you have building your business across a variety of topics.
  • Fast Track to our Post-Programs ("Founder Lab"), where you can work closely with our Silicon Valley HQ virtually to reach advanced milestones like raising a seed round of funding for your business.  
  • Free and unlimited global program access for life. As an FI Grad, you can attend any in-person program session in any city around the world at anytime (including any future in-person program in your city).

In addition, we anticipate slightly smaller cohorts during this time period, will should increase the personal attention and feedback each individual founder receives.
