Praxis-Academy-20170801-0292.jpg

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 -- both domestic and internationally. Academy students get personal access to the Faculty through workshops, breakouts, and roundtables. 

Below are examples of previous Faculty -- check back in 2019 for information about next summer’s leaders.
