Who We Are

Promise is a non-profit venture studio that attracts, supports and connects entrepreneurs focused on early childhood development (ECD). 

Our mission is to create a vibrant community that supports entrepreneurs and their ventures in ECD. We aim to catalyze system-wide change — and create sustainable impact for the most disadvantaged children (age 0-5) and their families in the U.S.

 

Why a Venture Studio?

A venture studio provides entrepreneurs with a diverse set of programming that supports them throughout their entire journey. We envision Promise to become the central community for entrepreneurship in ECD. This model enables us to attract more people, more ideas and more activity that will accelerate the pace of change and impact.
