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 division focused on building a next-generation entrepreneurial community who are pursuing redemptive action in the midst of pressing issues in the world. Our flagship program is the Academy Week, where we annually gather top undergraduates and recent graduates from around the globe to learn from 30 leading practitioners of redemptive entrepreneurship and form friendships with like-minded peers.

Join us for a special event that includes attending the Opening Session of the 2019 Academy Week, where you will hear formative talks on redemptive imagination, a theology of work, entrepreneurship & culture making, and more — followed by a dinner and talkback with the keynote speakers, including Author and Praxis Partner, Andy Crouch.
