Founder Institute Lagos Chapter Opens Applications for Cohort IV


The Founder Institute Lagos Chapter is calling for applications for its Cohort IV from across Nigeria.

The Institute takes employees and potential founders and, through a 14-week long program, turns them into successful entrepreneurs. The  Founders are given company-building work each week to create their businesses, and they are divided into groups of their peers, where the Founders share their best practices.

According to the Lagos Chapter Lead Director of the chapter, Ifedy Eze:

“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.”

The Founder Institute Lagos 2021 pre-seed accelerator program starts in January 2021 and is targeting aspiring and early-stage entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurs will receive constant feedback and regular office hours with 50+ Lagos Mentors, investors, and entrepreneurs, use proven, structured processes to get traction and funding for their products and raise over $950M in funding and get a suite of post-programs, including Funding Lab for expert venture support for years.

Entrepreneurs will also expand their support network to include startup founders, CEOs, and investors from the Founder Institute’s global network of 4,500+ alumni as well as 18,000+ mentors across 200+ cities.

The Founder Institute is the world’s largest pre-seed startup accelerator. Since 2009, it has helped over 4,500 entrepreneurs get the focus and support needed to build a business that matters. Based in Silicon Valley and with chapters across 90 countries, the Founder Institute’s mission is to empower communities of talented and motivated people to build impactful technology companies worldwide.
