What Are Founders?

The Founders of Future Works Alliance PHL are early adopters and thought leaders, decision-makers and change agents. They understand technology and how it can change our lives. They also provided more significant seed funding to launch this effort.

How has your upbringing shaped how you manage risk? 
I am a 3rd generation Philly native and an African American citizen of this country. So, risk sometimes takes on not-so-subtle meaning. I often need to define, understand, and manage personal and professional risks. 

Become One of 76 Original Founders 

Since November of 2020, we have built a core group of more than 50 Original Founders.  We will soon have 76 Founders because it is a very Philadelphia number that reminds us of our ingenuity, passion and determination. Contact us here for more information about Foundership for you or your company.
