The Mission of Founders Forum is to Inspire, Educate and Connect Entrepreneurs.

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.

As part of our mission, Founders Forum seeks out and honors business excellence within our community through our Founder of the Year Award, as well as presentations and moderated panel discussions with accomplished local business men and women discussing issues important to today’s entrepreneur.
