How the Founder Institute Has Launched 415 Startups in Just 2.5 Years [#Infographic]

TheFunded.com News

Posted by jonnystartup on 2011-12-12

PUBLIC:

Last week, TechCrunch reported that the Founder Institute has now helped launch 415 companies. In terms of graduates and companies launched, this makes us the world's largest incubator - and we have done it just 2.5 years.

So, how have we done it? In order to describe our model as easily as possible, we created an infographic. It's a bit too long to post on TheFunded's blogroll, but you can check it out on the Founder Institute site here.

Members of TheFunded have played a crucial role in our growth, and for that, we thank you. Incorporated in April of 2009, it was originally named "TheFunded Founder Institute." In fact, we crowdsourced the program's company-building curriculum by polling TheFunded's membership, and also utilized our database to recruit our original Founder and CEO Mentors as well. Now we have over 715 Mentors, are operating in 21 cities across four continents, and are on pace to launch an average of two companies per day.

Rather than bringing talent to Silicon Valley, we are going to different markets, gathering their best startup leaders, service providers, and most promising founders, and building local, sustainable, teamwork-based startup ecosystems. This model is working, and our vision of globalizing Silicon Valley is starting to take hold.
