Through the “Silicon Luxembourg Fellowship”, candidates not only can apply to the Founder Institute for free ($50 value), but the best, qualified applicant to the Luxembourg program will also receive a Fellowship to participate in the world-renowned company-building program for free (999$ value). Anyone who wants to start a technology company is eligible for the fellowship – including employed or unemployed candidates, those with or without ideas, and those with technical or business skills. In order to be considered, interested candidates must apply online by November 25th 2018.

“Even though people possess industry knowledge, motivation, and strong leadership skills needed to launch impactful companies, many don’t know the first steps to launching a business,” says Anna Radulovski, Founder of Coding Girls and Director at Founder Institute Luxembourg. “We created the ‘Silicon Luxembourg Fellowship’ to encourage more people to leverage their amazing skill set towards building their own businesses.“

“Leaders of the world’s fastest-growing startups have used the program to transition from employee to entrepreneur, test their startup ideas, build a team, get their first customers, raise funding, and more.”

The Founder Institute’s comprehensive, step-by-step program gives aspiring entrepreneurs the structure, mentor support, and network needed to start an enduring company. In addition, the Founder Institute is the only program of its kind that focuses on people versus ideas, accepts founders with day jobs, and shares equity with all participants. Leaders of the world’s fastest-growing startups have used the program to transition from employee to entrepreneur, test their startup ideas, build a team, get their first customers, raise funding, and more.

“A similar fellowship program for females helped the Founder Institute to increase the number of female founders globally by 62% in just a few months time,” says Anna. “I’m hoping the ‘Silicon Luxembourg Fellowship’ can have that type of impact on Luxembourg.”

If you would like to be considered for the Silicon Luxembourg’s Fellowship, you must apply using this link by the deadline on November 25th 2018. All applicants will be invited to take the Predictive Admissions Test for free ($50 value), and the Founder Institute will select the best, qualified applicant to the Luxembourg Founder Institute for the Fellowship.
