Our programs
Which program should I apply to?
EF Graduate is for students, recent graduates, and individuals with less than two years of professional experience.

EF Core is for early career professionals, academics and PhD graduates with two or more years of experience.

Please only apply for one program, in one hub city, at a time.
Do I need a cofounder to apply?
No you do not need a cofounder to apply. Our program brings together exceptional individuals to find a cofounder and build a startup from scratch.

We assess all applicants as individuals, before they have a business, cofounder or an idea. If you already have a cofounder, please mention this on your application, or get in touch with your local EF team to discuss.
Why is the program full-time and in person?
Our program brings together exceptional individuals to find cofounders and build startups from scratch. Within eight weeks, 80% of participants will find a cofounder. This unique process works due to the cohort’s shared focus and commitment to founding right now. This works best in person, where ideas and relationships can be quickly forged and iterated.

That’s why we expect you to commit full-time to the program, and move to one of our hub cities to take part in person. We host a highly anticipated Kick Off Summit ahead of each program, where your cohort will be brought together for the first time for a residential weekend.
