The Founder Institute, the world’s largest pre-seed accelerator, and Shecluded, a female-focused technology company providing financial services to African women entrepreneurs are collaborating to offer the best applicants from the Shecluded community with the Shecluded Fellowship to participate in the Lagos Virtual 2020 program for free ($499 USD value).
The Lagos Virtual 2020 program is a 14-week program which includes a series of challenging growth sprints, in addition to weekly feedback sessions where participants will receive constant feedback on their progress from experienced Mentors and Investors.
Through this collaboration, anyone with a pre-seed startup or an idea can apply to the Founder Institute for free, and the best applicants who are accepted will receive a fellowship to the Lagos chapter of the global accelerator program.
Shecluded and the Founders Institute will help applicants get traction and funding with a support network of startup experts that are invested in their success, and through a structured business-building process that has helped alumni raise over $950M. Through the combined benefits of the Founder Institute and Shecluded an unparalleled global support network for early-stage founders to impact the present and influence the future will be created.
The Founder Institute focuses on helping tech or tech-enabled businesses at the pre-seed stage, including both solo-founders and teams. This includes established businesses that are pre-funding and traction, MVP and prototype-stage projects, and even part-time founders with just ideas.
To apply for the Shecluded Fellowship, interested applicants can sign up here. After completing the application, applicants will be invited to take the Predictive Admissions Assessment by the Founder Institute, which is a main criteria for evaluating applicants.
