About The Presenter:
The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation


The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation was established in the mid-1960s by the late entrepreneur and philanthropist Ewing Marion Kauffman. Based in Kansas City, Missouri, the Kauffman Foundation is among the largest foundations in the United States with an asset base of approximately $2 billion. Its 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, they focus on grant making and operations on two areas—education and entrepreneurship—which its founder, Ewing Kauffman, saw as two ends of a continuum. A quality education is the foundation for self-sufficiency, preparing young people for success in college and in life. Many young adults will work in businesses started by entrepreneurs. Some will become entrepreneurs themselves, providing jobs and wealth for society.

The Kauffman Foundation website is a virtual treasure trove of information and resources that current and prospective entrepreneurs will likely find of great value. We encourage you to explore it. http://www.kauffman.org/
