Founders Embassy is the world's first embassy designed for international and immigrant entrepreneurs committed to making a positive impact on the world. Unlike typical accelerators and incubators, we focus specifically on global founders, offering them unprecedented access to Silicon Valley through immersive acceleration programs and impactful events, co-working opportunities, and thought leadership - all without any exchange of equity. 


Mission

To bring international and immigrant entrepreneurs together through the curation of acceleration programs and impactful events designed to elevate global entrepreneurship and help founders get established in Silicon Valley.

We believe that radical inclusiveness will drive far greater outcomes than ever before and it starts with bringing people together from diverse backgrounds to solve the world's most consequential problems.


Acceleration Programs & Impactful Events

Founders Embassy is designed to be a "home away from home" for global entrepreneurs whether they are visiting founders from another country or immigrant founders living in the U.S.

BORDERLESS

"A Unique Experiment in Startup Acceleration"

Twice a year, Founders Embassy brings up to 15 global founders from diverse backgrounds to Silicon Valley for a rigorous 2-week program. Representing different countries and living together under one roof in the heart of San Francisco, founders connect with thought leaders and offer feedback to one another while receiving coaching from Silicon Valley mentors, experts, and investors.

 

BORDERLESS SUMMIT

THE FIRST SUMMIT DESIGNED TO ELEVATE INTERNATIONAL AND IMMIGRANT ENTREPRENEURS

TUESDAY, JUNE 5TH, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO

In a world presently plagued by endless borders, now, more than ever before, it is imperative that we come together to support, educate, inspire, and elevate the change makers committed to making a positive impact on the world.

Join us as we bring together some of Silicon Valley's brightest minds in the heart of the most innovative city on earth to expand your network and knowledge, multiply your partnerships, secure new funding and customers, and meet the international founders going through our flagship two-week BORDERLESS acceleration program.


 

THOUGHT LEADERSHIP

Our speakers, mentors, advisors, and coaches represent some of Silicon Valley's most successful entrepreneurs, VCs, and experts in their respective industries. They offer their expertise to founders as a way to "pay it forward", or give back to the entrepreneurial ecosystem of their home country or simply because they believe that an understanding of the Silicon Valley mindset is essential in the advancement of global entrepreneurship.

 

Partners & Resources

There are countless organizations worldwide hoping to understand, leverage and connect with Silicon Valley. Our global network of Ambassadors around the world are our eyes and ears in their respective startup ecosystems, providing insight into the best global companies to participate in our acceleration programs. In addition to our Ambassadors, our local and global partners offer invaluable resources to entrepreneurs including legal and immigration advice, financial support, and other tools to help them succeed.

 


What makes us different?

Borderless by Design: Diversity and inclusion are at our core. Many organizations consider helping international and immigrant entrepreneurs, but it comes secondary to their primary goal: to see substantial returns.

Impactful Events: We believe in the power of intimate, impactful, curated events designed to help entrepreneurs succeed and reach their full potential. Founders Embassy doesn't believe that "one size fits all", so each of our events and programs are carefully customized for each audience, allowing for relevant discussions, purposeful networking, and meaningful outcomes. 

Unique Physical Spaces: Our mission is to bring international founders under one roof. That roof may be a warehouse, a church, or even a tent! We believe in the power of an environment in creating transformative experiences.  

No Equity Share: Founders Embassy does not take any equity from entrepreneurs who participate in our programs. We do, however, help these founders connect and communicate effectively with Silicon Valley investors.
