Praxis Academy

More than 100 college students gathered at Gordon College for the first two years of the Praxis Academy—an immersive event to catalyze a generation of entrepreneurs to create impact and shape culture.

Representing more than 30 schools (including Harvard, Stanford, Westmont and Wheaton [IL]), students met in small groups with start-up founders and pitched ideas. Every activity was unified by a desire to think deeply about what it means to be a Christian in the creative process of entrepreneurship.

“I am so thankful I was able to attend Praxis Academy as it is the Christian entrepreneurship and culture shaping catalyst event of its kind. It was encouraging to see that so many of the speakers and leaders at Praxis had implemented their faith in forming their ventures. It was revolutionary in the way that I thought about being a Christian in business and I know my peers felt the same.”
