Founder Institute Lagos set to give free fellowship to a member of the Connect Nigeria community during their Cohort IV Lagos Virtual 2021 session.
Founder Institute Lagos has partnered with Connect Nigeria to sponsor the best applicant from the Connect Nigeria community with a Fellowship to participate in the Institute’s next session, Cohort IV Lagos Virtual 2021 program.
Founder Institute Lagos is a chapter of Founder Institute, the world’s largest pre-seed accelerator, based in Silicon Valley with chapters across 65 countries. Founder Institute (FI) Lagos provides support to top talented and motivated founders building tech-enabled businesses in Lagos
FI’s latest session has a course fee of $499 but $399 for early bird payments ending on Sunday, January 17, 2021.
The Founder Institute’s curriculum is a rigorous and well-planned 14-week program that trains founders as they build their solutions. It teaches them best practices to build their businesses from idea to minimum viable product or traction, depending on the stage of the idea.
The program matches founders with top business leaders as expert mentors who provide practical and real-time guidance. This matching helps founders grow their network and reach, within the local and global tech ecosystems.
Despite, or perhaps because of its strenuous nature, FI Lagos Founders have nothing but commendations for the program.
Announcing the launch of the Cohort IV Lagos Virtual Semester, Ifedy Eze, the Lead Director of FI Lagos remarked that:
“We are excited to be launching the next cohort of founders into the Founder Institute program in Lagos. We believe that the future of Africa lies in unlocking value-adding entrepreneurship that can create real change and catalyze development across multiple verticals. This is the mission to which we have committed to, and we look forward to working with this new cohort of founders to move the needle northward in that regard”.
The Final Application Deadline for the Lagos Virtual 2021 program is January 31, 2021, and you can apply to the program at FI.co/join. Classes commence on February 2, 2021.
