The Cause: Supporting Lost boys of Sudan to help rebuild Sudan:

This year our event will support New Scholar’s endeavor to assist the aspiring young entrepreneurs who want to rebuild their country. By first, providing them with fundamental business training and then, assisting them through the incubation phase, the fledgling startups can eventually take full flight.
SEE the first-hand account from Nicodemous: at age seven, forced to flee his village, he walked for 3 months straight to escape the genocide, surviving on whatever he could find in the wild-- even rats. After 9 years in the arduous conditions of a refugee camp, thanks to New Scholars, he is starting a real business. Help him thrive!

By supporting New Scholars, you are helping determined people who lived through genocide to rebuild their country. You are investing in long-term, sustainable recovery.

New Scholars is a social venture empowering African entrepreneurs to jumpstart not just their own ventures, but the economy of the world’s newest country, Southern Sudan, as well. It was co-founded by the one of the original "lost boys of Sudan" - the only one to graduate from Stanford- and a Silicon Valley born and bred young entrepreneur.
