Pave the Path partner Believe In A Dream Inc launched its Young Visionaries Fellowship program to demonstrate that there is more to entrepreneurship than just making money. The purpose of the Fellowship is to encourage young people to exercise their entrepreneurial skills to make an IMPACT on their community (their school, neighborhood, city, or region) or maybe even the entire world! The Fellowship grants $1,000 to 5 young people 15 to 25 who will use it to make their community a better place!
In August, Believe In A Dream Inc announced its 2019 Young Visionaries Fellowship winners, the very first cohort. 3 of the 5 2019 winners are alumni from the 2018 Pave the Path Young Leaders Summit! They were announced on stage at Founders Spark Origins, in front of an audience of 70 entrepreneurs.
These 5 outstanding young people range from age 15 to 18, they represent 3 different high schools, and they hail from 2 different Northeast Indiana counties. They are all actively leading impact projects that exemplify the Fellowship criteria.
