Promise is a nonprofit venture studio that attracts, supports, and connects promising entrepreneurial talent, capital and stakeholders to pave the way for the sustainable growth and impact of social entrepreneurship in Early Childhood Development (ECD).
We support nonprofit and for-profit ventures and organizations at any stage of development that reach (directly or indirectly) children, prenatal to age 5 in the U.S., and their families and communities who are facing the greatest adversities.
We envision a world where all children, no matter their background, can fulfill their innate promise.
We catalyze innovation and impact in the ECD ecosystem by attracting, supporting, and connecting social entrepreneurs, ecosystem stakeholders, and capital to drive outcomes for families facing the greatest adversities.
We provide programs, content, and networks specifically designed to:
attract more and more diverse ideas, talent, and capital flow to the field
support ECD venture creation and accelerate their path to scale and impact
connect a diverse set of ECD stakeholders (entrepreneurs, funders, experts, researchers and policy makers) to grow and contribute to a thriving ECD innovation ecosystem
