Future Founders Foundation

The Future Founders Foundation is a non-profit organization that inspires youth in Chicagoland to explore and practice entrepreneurship. We offer programs to connect students with mentors and provide engaging project-based learning experiences for students in elementary school through college. From 2005-14, our programs served 22,500 students. This year, we are serving over 7,000 students at 50 schools.

Our organization was created in 2011 through the merger of Future Founders, the youth entrepreneurship program founded by the Chicagoland Entrepreneurial Center (CEC) in 2005 and Connect to the Future, the career exposure program that Lightbank Co-Founder Brad Keywell launched in 2006. We launched Lemonade Day Chicago in 2013, and we created College Founders in 2014.

Join us as we empower the next generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs.
