Founder Institute Explores New Columbus Chapter

The Founder Institute, the world’s premier idea-stage accelerator and startup launch program, is exploring a Columbus Chapter with the help of Innovate New Albany’s on-site leader, Neil Collins, co-director of the Columbus Founder Institute initiative and president of Results Marketing Group.

Founder Institute is the only program of its kind that focuses on people versus ideas with a rigorous curriculum and expansive mentor network. Participants keep their day jobs while learning to build successful enterprises.

“I am continually amazed at how many people have an idea for a new business or dream about launching their own company,” Collins said. “Founder Institute will be a great avenue for these people to develop and test their ideas through a process designed to reduce risk and prevent costly mistakes.”
