Praxis is a venture group, structured as a 501c3 nonprofit, that equips and resources a growing portfolio of entrepreneurs motivated by their faith to build organizations of considerable cultural and societal impact. The 2018 Academy is a week-long intensive where we gather top undergraduates and recent graduates from around the globe to explore a Christian vision for culture-shaping entrepreneurship. The opening night experience includes formative talks on redemptive imagination, a theology of work & entrepreneurship, and how love is the alpha & omega of entrepreneurship. 

Undergraduates and recent graduates across all majors will be gathered for this event; both current and aspiring entrepreneurs. All are passionate about their faith and interested in purposeful innovation across all of culture. The Academy Alumni community includes 500+ students from over 80 schools -- Ivy League, top research & liberal arts, Christian schools, and more. 

Academy is led by 30 entrepreneurs and leading thinkers -- including Jessica Kim, a serial entrepreneur who raised $1 million for her venture during her senior year of college;  Dave Evans, Stanford lecturer & author of The New York Times best-seller Design Your Life; Andy Crouch, author of Culture Making, Playing God, and The Tech-Wise Family, and former editor of Christianity Today; and many more.
