The Founder Institute is the world’s premier idea-stage accelerator and startup launch program. Through a challenging curriculum and strong post-program support, we provide aspiring entrepreneurs with structure, mentorship, and a network to start an enduring company.

Scott Collen is working hard to get the Silicon Valley-based accelerator for tech entrepreneurs to set up in Croydon and will be dropping to by to explain how Croydon’s tech startups can get into such a prestigious accelerator and what they should do if they want to prepare for entry. This will be invaluable if you are working on a tech startup and want to get into an environment that will speed up your path to success.
