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.
