Founders Forum was established in 1985 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to the needs of entrepreneurs within Brevard County, Florida. Originally a forum where new businesses could meet with funding sources and potential investors, Founders Forum has evolved into an educational and networking organization where entrepreneurs can learn from and build relationships with many of the regions’ most successful business leaders.
