Join our core and most selective in-house program dedicated to early-stage companies. This 3-month program is divided into 2 phases to help you network & learn, execute and build. You will get the opportunity to select one advisor with a huge track-record who will be offering you guidance and help on the main and strategic topics. To help you scale, we focus on 3 core needs of early-stage companies: building a great team, finding product-market fit & securing early-stage funding to build further.

Your journey in the Founders Program 2.0

Phase 1: Immerse

Be prepared to be on campus as much as possible for the first six weeks phase. This period is dedicated to getting you acquainted with your peers as much as possible, learning as much as you can through the workshops & community - and giving back. Reaching out and asking for help will be easier after you complete this phase.

Week 1: Meet Week

Meeting other startups & getting acquainted with the campus.

Week 2: Advisor Week

Meeting & selecting the best advisors for your own business.

Week 3: Give Week

Giving and sharing with other startups.

Week 4: Team Week

Key steps to build a stunning team to grow your company.

Week 5: PMF Week

Focussing on Product Market Fit and first clients deals.

Week 6: Money Week

Be ready for your next fundraising.

Phase 2: Execute

After you have completed Phase 1, you have 6 weeks to show us what you can accomplish. You have to focus on execution with only one mandatory meeting. Once this period is up, you better have the results to show us what you've been doing during the Battle.


All startups present what they accomplished in a friendly competition, known as Battle. This battle is preparing you for the next 12 months to come and will help us identify top performers for additional opportunities.

Phase 3: Stay on campus to Grow

After the 3 month program, we offer the possibility to any participants of the Founders Program 2.0 to stay up to 15 months at STATION F. You will have access to all the experts, campus resources, as well as the community. We expect you to continue moving quickly and to meet with your Advisor(s).

Work with top Advisors

Founders Program 2.0 has a dedicated Advisory Board of 30 entrepreneurs who have built leading businesses. These entrepreneurs have experience building teams, recruiting top talent, building products that customers want, growing revenue, fundraising and more. They founded companies such as Swile, Stonly, Alan, Too Good To Go, BigBlue,, Pigment, Eventbrite, Monshowroom, Sandbox, DFNS, etc.

Each company will have the opportunity to meet and select up to 2 advisors to work with - and to allocate a small slot on their cap table for them to create a long-term relationship.

Joining the program

Here are key elements we will look at when applying to Founders Program 2.0.

You're obsessed with building a responsible company

Responsability & diversity are not a “nice to have” - it's a core part of the DNA of tomorrow's leading businesses. Show us that responsability is already part of who you are and what you are building.

You're motivated by (BIG) results

For you, being a founder isn't just a title - it's in your bones. You have a strong work ethic and results to prove it. Right now, you're early-stage, you have an MVP, maybe a few users or revenue but not much more. But in 18 months, your product will be in market and will be creating an outsized impact.

Your company has a real upper hand in impact and trends

What sets you apart from 10 other companies working on exactly the same thing as you? If you have something that gives you an upper hand - an insight, a skill, an experience, a network - we want to know. We want to see that you are working on a game-changing innovation, that you are impact-driven, or ideally both.
