Talent is ubiquitous. Smart and capable people are equally distributed across our society. Opportunity should be too, yet sometimes it is elusive. Female and diverse founders, or those who are solving problems for under-represented communities can find it hard to access the resources that will make their ideas flourish.
At the same time a new narrative about the purpose of business in society is emerging. Business can and should be a force that elevates our collective humanity. Capitalism needs to be practiced in a way that first seeks to create value for society, and work should be a tool that helps us become the best version of ourselves.
we exist to nurture the soil of knowledge and networks for entrepreneurs, and, to shift the purpose of business. We create an environment so that anyone, anywhere can plant the seeds of their own prosperity. Allowing them to achieve their dreams and work to create a more just, joyous and prosperous society.
Our unique program provides benefit for entrepreneurs across stages and we welcome teams who have achieved traction and product/market fit as well as those who may be a bit earlier to apply.
