We help build successful companies.
At FOWNDERS our mission is to disrupt the paradigm of how entrepreneurs, creatives and the next generation of leaders get the right education, exposure, and self awareness needed to truly leave an impactful legacy. The world we live in now doesn’t play by the same rules determined 20 years ago. Through technology, innovation, human evolution, and the collective higher consciousness the time to do, be, and live the life you want is now.
Who We Are
FOWNDERS is a startup accelerator headquartered in Newark, NJ. As a social impact company, our mission is to use entrepreneurship, technology, & innovation as a vehicle to help revitalize the inner city. We accept qualified startups who have proven market fit into an immersive 12-week business development program. Our curriculum is designed to teach each FOWNDER how to create sustainable businesses using the lean methodology.
The difference between FOWNDERS and other accelerators is that in addition to focusing on business fundamentals and tech, we also focus on the emotional intelligence, social skills, leadership, and personal development of the FOWNDERS we accept into our program. We bring value through our education, network, and team of seasoned entrepreneurs. Fownders provides entrepreneurs with the tangible resources and skills so they can own their destiny by creating the business lifestyle of their dreams. Through this mission Fownders plans to create a shift in culture while disrupting education and creating economic growth through job creation, innovation, and the principles of entrepreneurship.
A community that will elevate your knowledge, allow your network to grow with the right introduction to the people you need to know most, and encourages you to not lose that spark of creative madness but instead nourishes it so it can change the world.
What do you need to know to be successful? How can you learn from other mistakes that way you don’t have to endure the same let down? Easy mentorship, timeless resources, and learning from people who have walked this path before and can give you the roadmap on what steps will take you to where you need to go.
New technologies and innovative ways aren’t going anywhere. They’re here for the long haul. We need to implement and test new ideas. Learn new skills set that the market needs like coding, digital marketing and storytelling in order to keep up with the every changing times.

ADVANCING THE SCIENCE OF SOCIAL INNOVATION
OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE: INNOVATE, DEVELOP, AND SCALE BUSINESSES THAT MAKE A MEASURABLE, MEANINGFUL POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.
HOW WE WORK
To succeed in today’s dynamic business environment, entrepreneurs need the skills, expertise, and intellectual sophistication to understand the complex interconnections between society, industry, markets, politics, arts, and culture. Unfortunately, these strategic, operational, and leadership skills are not learned in traditional classrooms.
TRAINING THE SOCIAL IMPACT BUSINESS LEADERS OF TOMORROW.
Our programs provide opportunities to develop, test, and scale sustainable solutions to today’s most pressing challenges. Through top-quality programming, communication, and engagement, Fownders enables entrepreneurs to think big, deliver impact, and improve lives.
WHY WE DO IT
We do what we do because we wish this existed when we were first starting out as entrepreneurs. You can go alone but when you go together you reacher higher standards at a much faster rate. We believe that talent is everywhere but the resources to support that talent aren’t. We’re working to encourage and educate the next generation to not only be successful in business but to be successful in life. To be a social impact business is not just to sound nice, it’s because we believe we can truly change the world with our ideas, actions and perseverance.
