Apply: Next Class of Founders.org + World Founder Forum 2016 ($100K in Funds)
Deadline: February 28, 2016
Applications for the second class of founder.org is open! FOUNDER.org provides funding, education and mentoring to young innovators who are solving the world’s most important problems. The goal is to help you build the foundation you need to become a world changing company.
- Students, faculty and recent alumni (last 18 months) from accredited universities around the world are eligible to apply.
- Teams involved in innovation and entrepreneurial programs (e.g. accelerators, incubators and competitions) at founder.org’s Partner Universities are also eligible to apply.
- Your team must have at least one, full-time eligible person.
What matters most is the impact of your idea, who is on your team and how thoughtful you have been about your business model. The eight dimensions include:
- Business Planning
- Market Development
- Customer Development
Each dimension is as important as the other in building a company, but early on during the application process, more emphasis is placed on Idea, Team and the business model aspect of Business Planning.
How to Apply
50 teams will be invited to this year’s class. The second application cycle deadline is February 28, 2016. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis – slots are filled as applications come in. The one year program begins with the World Founder Forum in June 2016.
