The Founder Institute comes to Seattle

The creator of TheFunded is at it again with The Founder Institute. Adeo Ressi has created the Founder Institute to help founders build great companies and he’s bringing it to Seattle.

The Founder Institute is a four month training program for both new and seasoned entrepreneurs. The Institute prepares founders to lead the next generation of world-class technology companies across a wide range industries, from the biotech to the internet. Weekly company-building sessions are guided by experienced CEOs, and they are held in the evening to allow participants to keep their day job or develop their companies during business hours.

All of the program stakeholders, from the participating founders to the experienced CEO Mentors, share in the upside generated by the companies formed during the program. Participants also enjoy free services from three dozen Institute Partners, fundraising opportunities at fair market value, and a teamwork-oriented environment to build a company.

The Seattle program will run from December 7th to April 5th and include mentorship from Glenn Kelman, CEO of Redfin, Derrick Morton, CEO of FlowPlay, and Bryan Starbuck, CEO of TalentSpring among others.

Chris Early will be operating the Founder Institute in Seattle through FounderWise and is hosting an informational event on November 2nd at the University of Washington. Register online for the free informational event.
The application deadline to be part of the training is November 27th and you can apply it here.
