A Creative community
Praxis is a creative engine for redemptive entrepreneurship, supporting founders, funders, and innovators motivated by their faith to renew culture and love their neighbors.
Our community of practice operates through high-touch programs, robust content, and a global portfolio of redemptive business & nonprofit ventures.
Praxis Academy is our next-generation entrepreneurial community of creatives and innovators from around the globe who are pursuing redemptive action through businesses and nonprofits across all of culture.

AN entrepreneurial ECOSYSTEM
Academy Week is our onramp into the community; a communal learning intensive led by top practitioners of redemptive entrepreneurship. Each Academy member is custom matched to a Cohort of peers interested in similar career themes. They build community during the week and are invited to continue learning together.
Academy Week leads to an opportunity for two formal follow-on programs:
Emerging Founders is for entrepreneurs already building a redemptive venture who plan to make it their full-time work. Through a combination of in-person and virtual events, Founders are mentored through a year-long process of “Learning, Discerning, and Designing.”
Academy Campus Collective is for innovators who want to bring redemptive entrepreneurship to their campus. 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.
In addition to our direct student and recent graduate programs, Praxis Academy works through School Partnerships to bring redemptive entrepreneurship to campus.

OUR Academy FACULTY
Each year, we invite 25+ leading thinkers and practitioners of redemptive entrepreneurship to be on the Academy Faculty. They represent a cross-section of businesses, nonprofits, and social enterprise -- with experience in a variety of fields both domestic and international. Academy students get personal access to the Faculty through workshops, breakouts, and roundtables.
