Here is a testimonial from an FI graduate who went through the 14 weeks of the program and have this to say; “when I joined I had a vague vision of what business I wanted to create, but it was through the Founder Institute that I was able to turn this vague vision into a precise and concise idea, and turn that idea into a running business. I don’t think there’s another program that can provide that guidance”.
