I never wanted to be an entrepreneur. I certainly never wanted to run a non-profit. And yet today, the non-profit I run just turned five. Five years old. Wow!
I don’t remember every step of the journey. I remember some lows, but more importantly, remember those highs – those big successes where our work had meaning. To this day, I still get energized every time I see our students’ eyes light up when they realize that they can create their own opportunity.
I want to say thank you to each of you. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for believing in the potential of our work. Thank you for giving us your time, your money, your passion. Thank you for being those entrepreneurial dreamers and doers who motivate us each and every day.
Today, I am proud to be an entrepreneur and love doing it. I believe the courage and passion to forge my own future was there all along…it just took running Future Founders and working with you to give me the confidence to do it.
That same potential exists in all youth – it just needs to be unlocked. And that’s why we exist: to ensure every youth can become an entrepreneur. Our mission is even more important today as it was when we started.
So please keep believing in us. Keep believing in yourselves. And let us work together to ensure that all youth discover the incredible potential they have inside them. The power to be an entrepreneur.
Thank you for an incredible five years. Here’s to many more ahead!
