San Diego Founder Institute Deadline Nears

One of the groups trying to help local startups in their efforts to find funding and get to the next level, the Founder Institute, said this morning that its early deadline for its Spring 2013, San Diego session is this Sunday. The group--which said its efforts in San Diego are being led by Jeanine Jacobson, co-founder of FounderList--is looking to sign up prospective and existing startup founders who can learn about launching their startups. The Founder Institute says its mentors in San Diego include such local execs as Brian Dear of Eventful, Joe Bezdek of DivX, Jon Carder of MOGL, and Jimmy Hendricks and Patrick Dillon of Deal Current.
