Supporting Aspiring Entrepreneurs around the Country

1MCOS 2017

The Kauffman Foundation finds uncommon ways to create opportunities and connect people to the tools they need to achieve success, change their futures, and give back to their communities. We believe that opportunity lies in the fields of education and entrepreneurship so we work with people and share resources that have national impact and global reach.

By creating a community of entrepreneurs, the Kauffman Foundation provides people with ideas the connections, tools, and support needed to be successful. The Foundation champions bold ideas to change futures because we believe every person should have the opportunity to fulfill their dreams and be uncommon.

We fight to empower the makers, the doers, the dreamers to break down the barriers that stand in the way of starting and growing businesses.
