Join Heartland Forward and our partner, Builders + Backers, to learn more about this exciting expansion across the heartland.
We have commited to raise the funds to support 1,000 builders solving community challenges throughout the middle of the country.
Why is this important:Entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of a local economy. All of us have ideas but don’t necessarily see ourselves as an entrepreneur. This new modernized approach to entrepreneurship provides an opportunity to take an idea and put it into action to see if it will work – and maybe even scale, at no cost.
Drilling down further:Builders are supported with a $5,000 Pebble Grant to test their ideas and are mentored by Master Builders throughout the program.
Our goal is to inspire more people to see themselves as entrepreneurs, equip them to create new ventures and solve problems.
