[Singapore] Founder Institute Singapore’s Fall 2011 Intake Now Open

Founder Institute has just announced its Fall intake in Singapore for this year!

If you’re a passionate aspiring entrepreneur who intend to launch a technology startup, or already running one that’s under two years old, consider participating in this. The program is specifically designed to be ‘founder-friendly’, and if you currently have a full-time job you don’t even have to quit it to attend the evening sessions. Mentors play a big role in the program as well – participating founders are plugged to knowledgeable thought leaders and entrepreneurs who share as much knowledge as they can.

The Founder Institute program in Singapore has come a long way as well – opened its first-ever session in Singapore last February with a Spring 2010 intake, which received a great response, and its Spring 2011 intake graduated a total of 21 founders and 19 companies for a total of 46 founder graduates and 40 companies in Singapore since it started.

You can apply for the program here.

Note: With the provision of a subsidy approved by Spring Singapore, Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents will only need to pay subsidized course fees of S$600. Additionally, SGFI will also be giving out between 5 to 8 scholarships to Foreigner Applicants who are accepted at S$500 per accepted founder.
