Our Mission: Future Fownders aims to cultivate and inspire our next generation of leaders by providing real world education for real world impact.
Future Fownders is a 501(c)(3) youth empowerment and education program based on three core pillars of Entrepreneurship, Financial Literacy and Emotional Intelligence. The program is birthed from the for-profit social enterprise, Fownders, which was founded by serial entrepreneur Gerard Adams. We provide our young people the space and freedom to openly express and actualize their ideas through the introduction of entrepreneurial principles and mentorship, encouraging them to create, build and own their ideas as well as their personal power.
Future Fownders is an immersive program encouraging the development of the entrepreneurial mindset, the cultivation of personal growth, and the establishment of a social network of like-minded aspiring youth entrepreneurs. Our Future Fownders are developed through our in-school programming, workshop series, internship program, mentorship and community outreach initiatives.
Our offering spans the realm of product-based businesses, foundational business theory as well as core intangible requirements for entrepreneurs like leadership, teamwork and communication. The result of the education is the development of valuable, practical and effective real-world skills. The program includes educational content, exclusive influencer appearances and hands-on mentorship from top business leaders. So far we have developed programs with Link Charter School, Big Picture Program at East Side High School, People’s Prep Charter, Central High School and secured a partnership for start-up capital with Real World Scholars.
All of our efforts have the intention of supplementing traditional schooling curriculums by incorporating the principles of entrepreneurship, personal development and by logically connecting the relevancy of core academic subjects in a uniquely curated manner. Our movement combines entrepreneurial principles with traditional education, ultimately setting the standard for real world education that creates real world impact.
