Silicon Valley-based The Founder Institute, a four-month training and mentoring program for technology entrepreneurs, recently announced its first-ever Spring 2010 semester for Singapore. With this expansion, the Institute will be the first Silicon Valley mentoring programme in Singapore, and will now be on pace to graduate over 700 founders creating over 500 companies per year in nine cities worldwide. The expansion is jointly done by the Singapore-based venture advisory and investment firm Battle Ventures and its partnered iAxil, the venture accelerator arm of Ascendas.

Jeffrey Paine, the Managing Director of Battle Ventures said, “Anyone starting a technology company or with a dream to launch an innovative business in Singapore is invited to apply (at http://www.founderinstitute.com/apply/11).” We used to report about Amazon Web Service Expanding To Singapore, and again, this program will definitely booth Singapore’s local startup ecosystem.

Singapore is a relatively small market but it is very international and very open. Jeffrey also shared with us his thoughts on this program and Singapore startups in general.
