Our founder, Ewing Marion Kauffman, believed that if you have an idea, you have a fundamental right to start a business to make it a reality. Yet, the startup rate is roughly half of what it was in 1980.
Take our Zero Barriers survey and help ensure barriers are removed for entrepreneurs.
We believe entrepreneurship is a fundamental human right for everyone.
You should not need a formal degree. It shouldn't matter your race, your age, your gender, or where you live. You should be able to start a business quickly, inexpensively, without confusion and without barriers.
In true entrepreneurial spirit, we cannot wait for others to fix these problems. We—the dreamers, the makers, the doers—are challenged to act.
