Praxis Academy is a community of next generation creatives, innovators, and entrepreneurs seeking to lead redemptive work in every sector
Praxis Academy shapes the hearts, minds, and imaginations of the next generation in the pursuit of redemptive entrepreneurship. We do this through 3 programs: our flagship Annual Academy, the highly selective Emerging Founders, and our growing list of partner and affiliate Schools. Learn more and join us through one of our three programs:
Each August, the Academy convenes about 200 undergraduates from more than 80 schools, including Ivy League universities, top public and research schools, and our Christian school partners. The program includes presentations, topical breakouts, mentor roundtables, worship and prayer, structured reflection, idea pitches, and meals with dozens of startup founders and cultural thinkers, including 25+ of our Praxis Mentors and Accelerator Alumni.Learn More
Emerging Founders is a next step for high-caliber young people who are already launching ventures of their own. We bring them through a similar experience to our Accelerator, condensed into a single summer where they work full-time on their venture to determine its viability. The program begins with a week-long induction at our headquarters in New York City, and continues throughout the summer as they learn what it takes to be a redemptive entrepreneur through readings, a speaker series, mentorship, discipleship--all while in the thick of the process of venture buildling.Learn More
Each year, we work with a select group of schools to share the lessons of redemptive entrepreneurship with students, faculty, and alumni. We offer workshops, talks, curriculum, and other content that powers and supplements their entrepreneurship programs. Schools also bring professors and top students to attend the Annual Academy.Learn More
During the lifetime of Academy, we're honored to have worked with over 500 young people who come from over 100 different colleges and universities—both domestic and international. These next generation leaders seek to tackle some of the biggest challenges of tomorrow through faith-motivated, redemptive work across all sectors.
Alumni chart their own course for staying connected to the community with the guidance of the Praxis team—from working together on ventures they conceived during the Annual Academy, helping each other find jobs or housing in new cities, to locally hosted meet ups, and more.
We say it often, and hear it echoed each year from the dozens of successful founders who mentor during the Academy: working with these dedicated next generation leaders gives us a unique hope about the future.
