Founder Funder Partners

Meet an amazing group of community builders who have donated money towards sponsoring scholarships for programs for entrepreneurs — including nonprofit founders, economically disadvantaged founders, and pre-revenue startups.

Because of these partners, there are founders who will be able to access our programs so they can pursue their ideas and be surrounded by a supportive community of entrepreneurs.

We will be announcing scholarship applications very soon...
but if you don't want to wait, check out our programs!
