The Next Generation Venture Fund invests in academically talented young people who have the potential to succeed in the classroom and beyond.
Too few gifted students from traditionally underserved backgrounds emerge from high school ready for admission to top academic institutions. While that alone is troubling, much more than the future of individual students is at stake. Our nation and the world need the talents of leaders from all walks of life to face the challenges ahead.
To meet that urgent need, the Next Generation Venture Fund seeks to bring talented young people from every segment of society into the pipeline of success— creating a new and more diverse generation of leaders who will understand the full economic, political, and cultural complexities of our global community.
All too often, promising young people fall short only because they lack access to the resources necessary to prepare, compete, and succeed at the highest levels. The Next Generation Venture Fund is changing that.
