Founders Academy

London, UK

Founders Academy is a new type of business school for a changing world.


Born out of Founders Forum, a global community of the world’s leading tech entrepreneurs, we develop the leaders of the businesses that will define our future. Leaders that will thrive in a world of accelerating change, unlock the positive value of technology and lead with purpose.


During our full-time 9-month "alt-MBA"​, you will learn alongside a hand-selected, diverse and ambitious Tribe. You will spend the first 3 months at the FA campus, engaged in an immersive, project-based learning experience that intersects fundamental technology, business & human literacies. After that, you’ll spend the next 6 months doing a paid placement at a high-growth, high-impact startup – a pathway into London's most innovative companies. Our placement companies span edtech, healthtech, fintech, govtech and more, including Bulb, Farmdrop, Ada Health, Founders Factory and Memrise.


Applications for our July 2020 Founding Tribe are now open. We're looking for ambitious professionals across industries with 3+ years'​ experience, who are passionate about harnessing new technologies to build a better world.
