Emerging Founders: An Entrepreneurial Immersion for Top Next Generation Founders
EMERGING FOUNDERS IS OUR SUMMER-LONG IMMERSION WHERE EARLY-STAGE FOUNDERS ARE MENTORED THROUGH THE VENTURE BUILDING PROCESS. OUR UNIQUE NON-EQUITY PROGRAM SELECTS A GROUP OF TOP FOUNDERS EACH YEAR AND HAS THEM WORK FULL-TIME ON THEIR VENTURE OR APPRENTICE WITH A PRAXIS FELLOW (ALUMNI OF OUR ACCELEREATOR) AS THEY APPLY THE PRINCIPLES OF REDEMPTIVE ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN REAL-TIME.
EACH YEAR PRAXIS SELECTS A COHORT OF HIGH CAPACITY FOUNDERS FOR OUR UNIQUE MENTORSHIP DRIVEN, NON-EQUITY PROGRAM THROUGH A HIGHLY COMPETITIVE APPLICATION AND INTERVIEW PROCESS.
APPLICATIONS FOR THE SUMMER 2018 COHORT WILL BE OPEN NOVEMBER 1 - DECEMBER 20.
Emerging Founders is a nine-week entrepreneurial immersion for undergraduates and recent graduates who are serious about their faith and pursuing a career in entrepreneurship.
Each summer, a cohort of 12-14 high-capacity next generation entrepreneurs are selected through a rigorous application and interview process. There are two immersion paths:
Venture Track: For current founders or co-founders who are working full-time on their startup. They participate in two in-person events (the start and end of the summer), as they work on their venture while participating in weekly coaching and curriculum.
Apprenticeship Track: For leaders who have a strong desire to be a founder and have an idea or problem they are deeply passion about. They are custom matched with a high-growth startup and spend their summer apprenticing directly alongside the founder (one of our Praxis Fellows, who have been through the Praxis Accelerator). Far more than a typical internship, apprentices get unprecedented access to the life of the founder and learn through first-hand experience what it's like to start, grow, and build a venture.
Both The Venture and Apprenticeship Tracks:
June 1 - August 4, 2018
9-Week Venture building program centered on Redemptive Entrepreneurship
12-14 Highly entrepreneurial undergraduates & recent graduates, selected through an application and interview process
Participants attend a Kickoff Retreat in NYC, then work on their venture full-time from anywhere for the summer, and attend the Academy Capstone in Los Angeles July 30-August 4.
