Emerging Founders

Jordan Perkins

Jordan is an innovator passionate about finding sustainable solutions to big world problems. To address some of the biggest needs she witnessed in Kenya, she and her fiancé John began a non-profit education and publishing company, Illuminate International. Illuminate recently won the Biola Crowell School of Business Startup Competition, and she and John recently spoke at the ECPA National Leadership Conference where they shared about their innovative approach to publishing and education. A May 2017 graduate of Biola University’s Crowell School of Business, she is eager to launch into working on Illuminate full time. Jordan is thrilled to be a part of the Praxis community through Future Founders, and learn from some of the most inspiring Christian entrepreneurs. 

Jordan completed the Venture Track, where she worked full-time on Illuminate International and was mentored by the Praxis Team. She is a 2016 Praxis Academy alumna.

Illuminate International is a non-profit organization publishing children’s books by global storytellers to fund our education empowerment model in under-resourced schools around the world. Our vision is to publish stories that allow parents to teach their children the value of diversity and global stories from a young age.
