40 YEARS OF CHANGE, NOT CHARITY.
To celebrate our 40th year powering entrepreneurs to end poverty, we will be highlighting 40 exceptional entrepreneurs who are under 40 years old making significant change in their communities. Our 40 Under 40 entrepreneurs show grit and courage while the odds are stacked against them. We’ll announce 2 new entrepreneurs every week, culminating in early September.
