ABOUT

Emerging Founders equips next-generation entrepreneurs in the midst of launching redemptive ventures of their own, whether businesses, nonprofits, or social enterprises.

The fellowship utilizes a combination of in person and remote events to guide early stage founders through a process of learning, discerning, and designing.

After running Emerging Founders as a summer-long experience in 2015-2018, we’re excited to announce updates to the program for 2019, Check back on March 1 for the full program details or sign up to get an email with the announcement.

APPLICATION PROCESS
