The learning doesn’t stop in Downtown Las Vegas. The Founder Institute, the “world’s largest startup accelerator”, has announced a new class meetup featuring leaders in the local tech community. According to the company’s website, the program offers a “structured, 4-month curriculum of weekly training courses and business-building assignments” from which “you graduate the Founder Institute as the Founder of an enduring company. Plus, sessions are held at night, so you can keep your day job.”
Interest is forming now for a semester in Las Vegas, according to Founder Institute’s blog post. The first event to get the community rallied around the concept will feature Tom Ellingson, founder of Fandeavor. This event will be held Tuesday, October 28 at Raster Media. At this event, Ellingson will lead the topic of “Employee to Entrepreneur”. Individuals interested in learning more about entrepreneurship, starting their own business, or becoming an entrepreneur are encouraged to attend the event at 6:30 PM. Raster Media is located at 1001 S Main St in Downtown Las Vegas.
Leading the Founder Institute’s efforts in Las Vegas are two leaders of the local startup scene – Mark Rowland (The Red Pill, ROCETEER INC) and Sara Hill (Director of Entrepreneurship, Work In Progress). Other community leaders who have pledged their support to mentor founders so far include Andy White, Damien Patton, George Moncrief, Jacqueline Jensen, Jonathan Jenkins, Karen Hartline, Patrick Olson, and Thomas Knoll.
The first information session for The Startup Institute will be held on the following Tuesday, November 4, at Work in Progress.
