The Founder Institute Announces Recruiting Event March 5, 2019


The Founder Institute is the world’s premier pre-seed startup accelerator, with chapters across 180+ cities and graduates that have built companiesexceeding $20 billion in estimated value. We provide high-potential entrepreneurs and teams with the critical support network and structured process needed to build an enduring company. Since 2009, we have helped over 3,500 graduates raise over $800 million in funding, get into seed-accelerators, generate traction, recruit a team, build a product, transition from employee to entrepreneur and more.

We believe 'Great Companies Start with Great People,' and the greatest variable in the success or failure of any company is its leadership.
As a result, we focus on founders versus ideas in our admissions process, and identify founders of the highest potential through a collection of aptitude and personality tests that have been in development with leading social scientists since 2008. To date, over 35,000 people have applied to our program, and our entrepreneur research has been featured in The New York Times, CNN, and Forbes.
We are currently looking for entrepreneurs for our next recruiting event on March 5 at CovWorx in Covington Kentucky. This is a 16-week program. Sessions take place once per week at night, and consist of progress reporting, training, feedback, evaluation and networking with at least 2-4 program mentors.

Our program is designed for founders and teams all throughout the pre-seed stage, including aspiring founders with a full-time job, solo founders, teams and founders of established companies that are pre-funding.
The Founder Institute is far more advanced than many online, educational, “bootcamp” or free programs run by governments and universities, but more early-stage than seed-accelerators that provide funding and/or space for startup teams.
Since Founders and Teams come into the Founder Institute at different points in the pre-seed stage, the bar for graduating varies per individual. At the very least, each graduate completes the program with the following:

  • Well-Formed Corporation
  • Local Network of Experienced Entrepreneurs and Investors
  • Formal Advisory Board of Top Mentors
  • Significant Product Progress
  • Significant Number of Leads and Customers
  • Progress on Team Growth
  • Investment-Worthy Pitch Deck
  • Clear & Actionable Next Steps for Growth

Many graduates are also able to secure funding and significant revenue by the end of the program.

Here are the details of the next recruiting event:
Date: March 5, 2019
Location: CovWorx - 1032 Madison Ave. Covington, KY 41011 (Parking available in rear of building)
