Year Established



The Founder Institute is the world’s largest pre-seed startup accelerator, having helped launch over 5,000 companies across 200+ cities and six continents. The company was founded by serial entrepreneur Adeo Ressi and his colleague, Jonathan Greechan. The idea for the program spawned from operating, where it became apparent that most entrepreneurs at the idea and launch stages lacked the structure, feedback, and support network needed to be successful. The Founder Institute program operates across 200 + cities and is localized into 9 languages. In total, Founder Institute Alumni have raised over $1 billion and are worth an estimated $30B.
