    Building Kits For Kids, Green Kid Crafts Shares Mother’s Love For Environmental Ethics With Children – Around The Country

    Like so many children’s products, Green Kid Crafts is a mother’s invention, born out of need.

    By Penny Bauder (Founder, Green Kid Crafts)

    While I actually have a science background, and no business schooling whatsoever (although I am enrolled in The Founder Institute Fall 2012 Session and was just awarded the Female Founder Fellowship – yay!), I’ve found that that the entrepreneur lifestyle is an exact match for my personality.

    The Founder Institute Seeks Female Founders, Offers Fellowships

    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.
