On January 8th, eight new companies and 9 founders graduated from Founder Institute New York as the 18th cohort. This was the first Founder Institute New York cohort in partnership with Loyal.vc, which will be investing in each of the graduating companies! The companies represented several industries including biotech, fitness, edtech, erotica, fashion and more.
I want to thank the New York Mentors and the Founder Institute team for all the hard work and time put into helping the founders of FI NY 18. I want to also thank the New York founders of FI NY 18 and I am excited to continue supporting their journey.
