Emerging Founders equips next-generation entrepreneurs in the midst of launching redemptive ventures of their own, whether businesses, nonprofits, or social enterprises. Each year, we hand pick a cohort of 12 high-capacity leaders, either current undergraduates or recent graduates, and invite them into the Praxis community. Modeled off our Accelerators, this highly selective program condenses learning into a single summer where the cohort works full-time on their ventures to evaluate viability, while simultaneously participating in intensive mentoring, readings, a speaker series, and discipleship.
Applications for 2019 are open March 2 - May 1. Learn more about Emerging Founders.
Starting in Fall 2019, Collective members will work with Praxis Academy to launch campus groups that convene robust discussions on redemptive entrepreneurship. Much like salons in 16th century Italy were gatherings for the exchange of ideas, Collectives will convene robust discussions on the influence and impact of entrepreneurship on culture.
Collective members will also meet monthly with the Praxis Academy team and a Cohort of peers working on these initiatives across a diverse group of campuses. The meetings will be a combination of learning from leading mentors and sharing best practices in applying redemptive entrepreneurship.
If you are an Alumni interested starting at Praxis expression on your campus starting in Fall 2019 (or perhaps you already have!) we’d love to hear about it. Please email us!
