About Founder Gym
Founder Gym is the first online program that trains underrepresented founders on how to raise capital to scale their tech startups.
Founder Gym launched its inaugural cohort in January 2018. Over the span of that year, Founder Gym trained 170 underrepresented founders, which is nearly 550% more founders than any other program in its field. Since then, our alumni base has grown to 253 founders spanning 11 countries (Canada, Colombia, Denmark, Egypt, Ghana, Jamaica, Lebanon, Mexico, Nigeria, United Kingdom, and the United States). Alumni have already raised $35 million in startup capital since graduating from the Founder Gym Cohort, and that number continues to grow.
The Founder Gym leadership team is comprised of founders, startup advisors, professional educators, and seasoned tech ecosystem builders.
