About Founder Gym
Founder Gym is the first online program that trains underrepresented founders on how to raise capital to scale their tech startups.
The inaugural FG Cohort debuted in January 2018, and over the span of that year, 170 underrepresented founders were trained. Since then, Founder Gym’s alumni base has grown to 329 founders spanning 16 countries, including Australia, Canada, Cayman Islands, Colombia, Denmark, Egypt, Ghana, Ireland, Jamaica, Lebanon, Mexico, Nigeria, Palestinian Territories, Spain, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States. FG Graduates have raised more than $35 million in startup capital, and that number continues to grow.
The Founder Gym leadership team is comprised of founders, startup advisors, professional educators, and seasoned tech ecosystem builders.
