Founder Institute, an international mentorship-driven program to hone the skills of startup founders, has opened up application in Singapore for the first semester of this year.

Started in March 2010, Founder Institute Singapore has graduated 26 founders and 23 companies so far.

This program consists of a four month long curriculum that trains founders in various aspects of running a business. Classes are held weekly in the evening, after work hours. These sessions will be led by a mix of Singapore-based and overseas mentors. Last year saw successful entrepreneurs like Mint’s Aaron Patzer, Evernote’s Phil Libin and BuzzCity’s Lai Kok Fung mentoring the students.

Founder Institute will be charging SGD600 for Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents. In addition, the institute will also be giving out five scholarships to foreign candidates.
