Founders Embassy is the world's first accelerator designed exclusively to induct international and immigrant entrepreneurs into the Silicon Valley ecosystem.
Founders Embassy focuses on elevating, inspiring, and educating international and immigrant founders by offering them unprecedented access to Silicon Valley through its immersive acceleration programs, impactful events, and thought leadership - all without any exchange of equity. 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.
GLOBAL FOUNDERS NEED SILICON VALLEY

Silicon Valley is still the most active hub for investment capital in the world.

The Silicon Valley “startup mentality" is unlike anywhere else in the world. People are willing and excited to give back to the next generation of global change makers.
Likeminded entrepreneurs and partners
Starting a company can be a long and lonely journey. Building an ecosystem of entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley helps to encourage and support founders as they grow – either here or abroad.
Founders Embassy's mission is to democratize access to Silicon Valley for the most talented international startups that lack the privilege of insider connections and resources.
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.

Founders Embassy programs and events are designed to be immersive, inclusive, and informative.
