Founder Labs is coming to NYC

Logo Founder Labs has been alive and thriving in SF for some time and this summer they are launching a program in NYC.  I am supporting their efforts with a small investment as well as being a mentor. 

The program will last from May 21 – June 29th running Monday – Friday evenings and weekends which is a bonus for many women.  They will select about 15 hackers, engineers, designers, marketing and business mavens to develop high-growth mobile ventures in NYC.  You can apply individually or as a partnership.  Their motto is they build teams and validate ideas. 

A great group of people have signed up to mentor including Janet Hanson founder of 85 Broads, Jim Robinson of RRE and Esther Dyson of ED Ventures. 

Founder Labs has already done this successfully in SF.  Here is what you can expect the group to look like.  50/50 male/female split, 10 engineers/developers, 5 designers and 5 business/marketing mavens. 

Another reason why NYC is the place to be these days.  Calling all entrepreneurs to sign up and build a mobile start-up business.
