The Founder Institute, a training program for technology entrepreneurs that shares equity upside among all stakeholders, is opening semesters in Singapore, Paris, Los Angeles and Denver for the Spring 2010. With this expansion, the Institute will now operate in nine cities worldwide, putting it on pace to graduate over 700 founders creating over 500 companies per year.
The Institute is run by founders for founders, providing a framework for successful entrepreneurs to share their experiences and to help. We've already lined up an impressive group of mentors for the Spring semesters, including Nolan Bushnell (Founder of Atari), Michael Robertson (Former CEO of MP3.com), Aaron Patzer (Founder and CEO of Mint.com), Phil Libin (CEO of Evernote), and many more.
If you can benefit from training and mentorship to make your startup more successful, please apply. If you know a founder that needs help, encourage them to join the program. The deadline for early admissions is February 15th, with all applications due by February 28th, 2010.
Everyone that graduates from the program is invited to join a pool to share in the upside generated from the success of their peers. This adds a unique camaraderie to the program and creates a long-term peer support group with a vested interest in your success. Take a minute to apply today.
Below is a video introduction to the Founder Institute delivered to 100 guests at the University of Washington in Seattle.
