Have Questions About Startup Institute? Ask Us Anything.


As a company, we consider ourselves pretty transparent. We’re not afraid to say who is and isn’t the right fit for our program, we tell our students about company operations, and we want anyone to be able to ask us anything.

The spirit of transparency is something that’s shared from our founders to our current students, and everyone in between (staff, instructors, alumni, and partners). We know our program is non-traditional, so not surprisingly there will always be a few questions about what we do and how we do it. We don’t believe in stupid questions. In anticipation of the questions our Summer applicants might have, we want to share some resources that could come in handy.
