Graduating from the Founder Institute is challenging.
First, only roughly 30% of applicants are admitted to the program. Then, less than 30% of accepted founders generally make it through the program.
In order to graduate, a Founder needs to:
- develop an engaging idea for a technology company that is validated by the program mentors
- plan out the business
- work on an offering
- incorporate their company
- complete all of the required assignments
All of this must be completed within a four-month timeframe. Reasons for not graduating differ, but each Founder who leaves is invited to join a future program when they are ready to launch a business.
