Founder Institute Singapore Spring 2011 Applications Now Open
January 28, 2011 by SGE
Apply to join the Founder Institute, where a growing number of Mentors and partners will help you build a world-class technology company from Singapore. Everything about the Institute is designed to be ‘founder-friendly,’ from the economic terms to the supportive environment.
The Institute is looking for passionate people to apply, whether you are thinking to launch a new technology company or running a startup that’s less than a couple years old. The Institute supports Founders in a wide range of industries, including digital media, software, biotech, cleantech, ecommerce, advertising, consumer electronics, and the internet. You don’t even need to quit your job to attend the evening sessions. The application takes a few minutes to complete, and applications are processed as they are received.
SGFI Fall 2010 graduated 14 founders and 13 companies, making a family of 23 companies with 26 founder graduates from Singapore!
Subsidies and Scholarships
With the provision of a subsidy approved by Spring Singapore through Ascendas’ iAxil incubator, Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents will only need to pay subsidized course fees of $600 SGD.
Additionally, SGFI will also be giving out 5 scholarships to 5 Foreigner Applicants who are accepted worth S$500 per accepted founder.
Apply by the Early Admissions Deadline of March 13th, 2011, and you will be notified of your acceptance into the Founder Institute in late March.
For a limited time only: apply early and the Institute will waive the $50 SGD Application Fee.
There are three additional benefits to applying early. First, you have two chances to be accepted, as your application will be reviewed now, and then once again on the Final Application deadline. Second, if accepted, you have more time to review the course materials and prepare for the program. Third, you are guaranteed a position in the program, which tends to fill up very quickly.
