So the big news this week is that Dather graduated from the Founder Institute! FI is an intensive 14 week program for entrepreneurs where highly successful local Mentors teach a curriculum focused on successfully launching start ups. There were 55 in the program at the start and 15 ended up graduating. It was not for the faint of heart!
This program was hugely beneficial to Dather as we were pivoting our business right when it started. The Mentors were very helpful and in particular we found Joey Tamer, Oded Noy, Travis Schmidt, Dale Fox, Richard Gibbs, Peter Sorenson and Brian Deagon to be particularly great for us. The other large benefit were the connections to the other Founders who we look forward to remaining in contact with and supporting as we each move forward with our businesses. All in all, a valuable experience. Now on to building on the great momentum we’ve started.
