Founder Institute appoints graduate as new Sydney director


The Founder Institute – a four-month executive training program for technology entrepreneurs – recently announced graduate Tom Frazier as its new Sydney director.

Frazier, the CEO of ProcessGo!, will join Benjamin Chong, partner at Right Click Capital, at The Founder Institute’s Sydney helm.

Benjamin Ranck, who currently holds the position, is stepping down due to international relocation.

In its three years of operation, the Founder Institute has helped to launch over 500 companies in 26 countries, making it the world’s largest startup accelerator.

“The Founder Institute is unique in its ability to prepare and motivate entrepreneurs,” Frazier says.

“I’m proud to help shape the next generation of Australian entrepreneurs.”

Alongside Chong, Frazier will manage the Institute’s program activities, recruiting approximately 30 CEO mentors per semester and providing regular office hours to founders in the program.

“Running the Founder Institute requires a delicate balance of entrepreneurship and financial focus,” Chong says.

“We wish Benjamin well in his move to Thailand and are confident that Tom will help us transform individuals from a person with vision into a startup CEO.”

The Founder Institute is currently accepting applications for the next session beginning in August.
