How do you inspire your best employees to solve real business challenges? How do you foster technological innovation within your organization? How do you keep your most talented people engaged?



The Founder Institute intrapreneurship offering answers all of these questions. Your employees enroll in our 3.5 month training program, where they learn best practices on building a business with technology at the core. These “intrapreneurs” are pushed to solve real problems faced by your company. The employees develop their ideas and solutions outside of business hours, during the nights and weekends. Approximately 75% of the employees will have ideas that can be integrated into the parent company as a business unit or process improvement, and 25% will propose solutions that have the potential to be stand-alone companies that partner with your organization. You can even explore taking equity in these businesses. Everyone comes out of the program excited and invigorated with innovative technology solutions that drive business results.


Employees become “intrapreneurs” and solve real challenges faced by your company using technology. The technology solutions that result can be integrated into the parent company through process improvements, new business units or spinoffs.


Your top employees will get invaluable life training while working on ideas that they are passionate about. The intrapreneurs return to work as inspired and engaged innovators.


The Founder Institute provides team building assignments that will force your employees to think outside the box, gives them management skills and fosters new competencies that your business will benefit from.


Your organization will be listed as a sponsor with prominent branding seen by aspiring entrepreneurs, established technology leaders and the entire ecosystem of innovators.

From Idea to Product in 14 weeks


The Founder Institute runs an intensive program that conditions people to think and act like successful technology company leaders. Once a week at night, three CEOs come in and talk to enrolled Founders about a key area of expertise needed to run a startup. Then, Founders go out and actually build their business following a roadmap of company­building assignments. The Founders are divided into Working Groups of their peers to share expertise and insights. The combination of CEO mentorship, a structured approach and experienced peer exchange leads to great results.
