About

The Founder Institute (http://fi.co) is the worldโ€™s most proven network to turn ideas into fundable startups, and startups into global businesses.

Since 2009, our highly-structured accelerator programs have helped entrepreneurs at the earliest stages grow quickly, know what to do next, and make connections with the largest community of startup advisors.

It all starts with our renowned โ€˜FI Coreโ€™ accelerator, which pushes founders at the idea and pre-seed stages to reach the milestones needed for investment and sustained growth. Alumni of FI Core then get free access to our advanced โ€˜Founder Labโ€™ accelerators for years to come, and can get matched with prospective investors in the FI Venture Network - a collection of global funds actively investing in the earliest rounds of funding.
