Our Vision The Founder Institute aims to improve the rate of startup success by providing high-potential entrepreneurs with expert training, critical objective feedback, and peer support.
Our Formula Great People + World Class Training + Aligned Incentives = Exponentially Better Chance of Success
Great Companies Start With Great People Proprietary Predictive Admissions Test to find the best people. This social science test was developed along with leading university social scientists, and is regularly calibrated to identify entrepreneurial personality traits and remove all forms of subjective bias.
World Class Training A four-month program with weekly company-building assignments guided by a worldwide network of over 500 Mentors that are founders themselves. Our curriculum was initially crowdsourced by the 15,000+ CEO members of TheFunded.com, and has since been improved using the Institute's experience running chapters in over 15 cities.
Aligned Incentives The Founder Institute employs a unique Bonus Pool where everyone shares equity in the companies formed from each semester. Each Graduate contributes 3.5% of their company equity in warrants to a 10-year Bonus Pool with other peers from the current semester. When one succeeds, everyone receives financial upside.
