About Future Founders:

Future Founders offers age-appropriate and stage-appropriate programs to connect youth with mentors and help them build a toolkit of entrepreneurial skills. We believe this leads to a generation of more determined entrepreneurial thinkers and doers…youth who will build their own businesses, work for startups, or bring an entrepreneurial perspective to whatever they do.

We focus on inspiring youth to create employment opportunities for themselves. Our work changes the conversation and instills confidence in our students that they do, in fact, have control of their own future.

Our students are highly motivated and passionate about entrepreneurship or are open to exploring entrepreneurship and developing new skills. From Chicago Public Schools to universities across the Midwest, we immerse youth in experiences to empower them to become entrepreneurs.

The Opportunity:

The Fellowship is a selective year-long program designed to accelerate the development of top young entrepreneurs across the United States. Fellows have priority access to all Future Founders services plus benefit from mentoring, entrepreneurship retreats, a peer community, and volunteer opportunities through other Future Founders programs.

The Fellowship is open to ALL young founders (18-30) who are a founder and equity holder of the company (typically the CEO or C-level position), and who are decision makers of the startup. School enrollment is not a factor in Fellowship eligibility. Ideal candidates should be passionate about entrepreneurship and proactively taking steps to grow their businesses.

Future Founders was created to foster inclusion in the entrepreneurial community and to seed more diverse founders into the entrepreneurial ecosystem. All founders are encouraged to apply.
