The Founder Institute is an early-stage startup accelerator and global launch network that helps entrepreneurs create meaningful and enduring technology companies. Through a four month program, existing and prospective founders can launch their dream company with expert training, feedback, and support from experienced startup CEOs – while not being required to quit their day job. 

FI_logo_largeIn just over three years of operation, the Founder Institute has helped launch over 675 companies across 39 cities, 24 countries, and five continents – making it the world’s largest startup accelerator.

Celebrate the future success of the Perth 2014 Graduating Class by attending the Perth FI Graduation Night. 

The Founder Institute startup accelerator is an extremely challenging program, and graduating is a signifcant achievement. In fact, less than 40% of applicants are accepted to the program, and less than 30% of those generally make it through. Being a Founder Institute Graduate Company is a seal of approval, signifying that company’s founders, mission, model, and plans as being validated by experienced startup CEOs.

On the 21st of August, graduates, mentors, investors, and friends are invited to celebrate the newest Graduates of the Perth Founder Institute. In addition to the Graduation Ceremony, guests will see short business pitches from this year’s graduates, hear short talks on life after Founder Institute from some of the Class of 2013 and enjoy a light dinner.

Angel investors, early-stage venture capital firms, Founder Institute Mentors, Graduates, friends and family are all invited to attend.
