OUR TEAM

Our Team

We are a team of passionate and experience entrepreneurs, investors, and change agents. We have experienced first hand the challenges of being an under-estimated founder and apply our unique live experiences to ensuring those after us have less barriers and more access. In partnership with our staff, we work with a host of freelancers, agencies, and a network of 160+ mentors to execute high-touch educational and experiential programming.
