Produced by the Kauffman Foundation, our Program videos combine interviews and on-the-scene footage to tell the compelling stories of talented people whose fresh ideas and energy create the innovative programs we are proud to support.
Our Kauffman Conversations highlight interviews with guests whose ideas and insights are changing society. We are privileged to talk with these thought leaders, innovators, experts and authors and share their observations about their work, lives, and fields of expertise.
Showcasing interview segments with senior leadership and program directors, our Insights series features thoughtful observations on a wide range of topics, revealing the Kauffman perspective to think differently and turn ideas into practical, sustainable solutions.
The extended play area of our Multimedia center, the Speaker Series features video and audio of significant speeches, presentations, forums, panel and roundtable discussions. We present complete presentations and highlights of remarks by Kauffman Foundation associates and key thought leaders speaking at seminars and symposia.

Based in Kansas City, Missouri, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation was established by the late entrepreneur and philanthropist Ewing Marion Kauffman. The Kauffman Foundation's vision is to foster "a society of economically independent individuals who are engaged citizens, contributing to the improvement of their communities." In service of this vision, and in keeping with our founder's wishes, we focus our grant making and operations on two areas: advancing entrepreneurship and improving the education of children and youth.
