EDUCATE, INSPIRE, AND EMPOWER THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS
Fownders is a social impact accelerator headquartered in Newark, NJ, accepting qualified startups who have proven market fit and display modern innovation. The accepted entrepreneurs go through a proprietary 12-week program called “Seed to Scale”. The training is designed to accelerate startups from a proven idea towards profitability and scalability using the Lean methodology.
The differentiator of Fownders between other accelerators is that we focus on emotional intelligence, social skills, leadership, and personal development of each entrepreneur. 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.

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.
Fownders 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. Plus it’s completely possible.
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.
