Early stage startups seeking programs with ‘no bullshit mentors or coaches’ attached should look to Paris.

The Founders Program at Station F, the world’s largest startup campus, runs on this very ticket.


“Of all the programs we have at Station F, the Founders Program is the biggest and is focused on working with early stage startups — regardless of their industry or country of origin. While a majority of our partner programs work with 10-20 startups, the Founders Program works with approximately 200 startups at any given time and accepts 50–100 new startups per year. Startups in the Founders Program must stay a minimum of three months and can stay until they reach 15 employees,” blogged Roxanne Varza, Director at Station F.
