e are thrilled to share with you some exciting news - BattlePass Studio and Founder Institute(FI) are starting a collaboration for the SEE region. We strongly believe that the bond between the pre-accelerator and our venture builder will drive long-term value for the startup teams that will join the FI program. The mix between the intensive 3-month accelerator and the opportunity to further proceed working with the BattlePass Studio team guarantees tangible results for the entrepreneurs aiming to launch their ventures.
Peter Lozanov, BattlePass' CEO will be joining the program as one of the Founder Institute's Mentors for Eastern Europe.
The Founder Institute is the world's largest pre-seed startup accelerator. Since 2009, they have helped over 4,500 entrepreneurs. 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.
The cooperation with BattlePass Studio will allow two Fellowships to participate in the next Founder Institute semester for free and it should enable promising founders to launch a company during the FI's idea-stage startup accelerator program.
Still, the applicants have to meet the Institute's minimum requirements in order to be accepted into the program. These include a start-up idea, as well as Entrepreneur DNA Assessment, which predicts the likelihood that someone can become a successful tech entrepreneur - regardless of their idea, locale, or demographic. The Early Admissions deadline is on March the 7th. Get ready to present us with the project that will sweep everyone off their feet! Two of the startup crews will be selected by the BattlePass team after the early deadline has passed to continue onwards as Fellowships!
We have seen time and time again how accelerators prepare founders to bring their venture to the next stage. Being able to dive into the basics of startup creation in the presence of peers is priceless. This is why we think that this program is perfect for first-time founders and for those who want to dive into the subject quickly and create a high-quality network. Afterwards, they’d be even more prepared to bring their ideas to life together with BattlePass Studio.
