Start a Company in 2019. Helsinki FI Early Applications Due Sunday

From: Jonathan G.

Hey Everyone,

This Sunday is the Early Admissions Deadline for the Helsinki Winter 2019 Founder Institute, a program that helps aspiring entrepreneurs and early-stage teams test and validate their startup ideas, add team members and co-founders, get their first customers, generate traction, raise funding, and more. If you are are ready to make several years of progress on your startup in just 3.5 months (and get a lifetime of support from the world’s largest community of founders and mentors), then this program might be right for you.

The Founder Institute is the world’s most challenging and effective step-by-step program to start a company. This is not a free “business training” or “startup bootcamp” workshop that accepts everyone and provides high-level startup education and encouragement — rather, FI is an extremely rigorous, real-world program for talented people that are motivated, open to honest and critical feedback, and ready to perform the hard work needed to build an enduring company. In fact, less than 30% of accepted Founders are typically able to make it to Graduation.

Meetup members are invited to apply for free at ($50 value), or you can learn more at

If you enroll by Sunday’s Early Deadline, you will also be eligible for a reduced course fee and several Founder Institute Fellowships.

Founder Institute Graduates across the globe have raised over $600M and are building some of the world’s fastest growing companies.

Have a great weekend!
