Dream Entrepreneurs Network

Unlocking talent and genius

Redefining Inclusive Innovation

To solve our nation's toughest problems, we need everyone's innovative ideas to create impactful solutions, especially from underserved and system-impacted individuals who are the closest to America’s systemic challenges.

The Dream Entrepreneurs Network (DEN) is a group of innovators who are on the cutting edge of creating solutions that transform communities most impacted by climate change and mass incarceration. They have historically overcome disproportionate barriers to break through into their respective sectors, and still face unique challenges in scaling their businesses.

Leveraging our expertise in policy, bridge building, and partnerships, we help members of the Dream Entrepreneurs Network pursue their dreams, scale their solutions, and create a more equitable future for all.

DEN member benefits include:

  • Policy Briefings
  • Government Relations Capacity
  • Funding Opportunities
  • Grant Writing Support
  • Curated Workshops and Fireside Chats
  • Exclusive invitations to premier events and conferences
  • Connections to peers and key stakeholders in the public and private sectors

Founders First

We prioritize founders with a shared lived experience so they can more easily connect, learn, and grow from a community of fellow underserved and system-impacted innovators.

Game Changing Collaborations

Collaboration sustains innovation and is necessary for creating breakthrough technologies that overcome systemic barriers. We’re leveraging a new approach to fundamentally change the way stakeholders come together across sectors.

Force Multipliers

Shared lived experiences combined with a common purpose strengthens community, and the Dream Entrepreneurs Network is no exception. When we join together to pursue our dreams, we multiply our impact.

We are built to support & accelerate Black, Brown & Justice-impacted innovators.
