The Founder Institute, the world’s largest pre-seed accelerator, and She-cluded have launched a Fellowship programme that will allow people to participate in the Lagos Virtual 2020 programme for free.

The Lagos Virtual 2020 program is a 14-week program which includes a series of challenging growth sprints, and 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 into the Lagos chapter of the global accelerator programme.

She-cluded 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 $950 million.

Through the combined benefits of the Founder Institute and She-cluded, 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 pre-seed stage, including both solo-founders and teams. Established businesses that are in pre-funding stage and have traction, minimum viable product, prototype-stage projects, and even part-time founders with just ideas can also apply.

To apply for the She-cluded 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.
