Founder Institute’s Female Founder Fellowship program increased 30% female graduates globally.
By Jonathan Greechan (Partner, The Founder Institute)
Last year, we unveiled a new program – Female Founder Fellowship (FFF) – in an effort to grow the number of female technology founders by providing free course fees for our best female applicants.
At the time, 16% of our graduates were female, and our stated goal was to double that number and ultimately graduate 175 female-led companies a year.
The FFF program helped spur a 30% increase in female graduates globally in just a few months time.
