Redemptive Builders Fall 2023

Announcing the first ever Redemptive Builder’s Idea Accelerator. We’ve partnered with our friends at the Indianapolis Redemptive Entrepreneurship Lab (designed by Praxis) to marry our proven program for getting ideas off the ground with world-class methods for supporting redemptive founders motivated by their faith to address the major issues of our time. Applications are now open for the first Redemptive Builder’s cohort in Indianapolis. This rapid-pace, 90-day, semi-virtual program not only gets your novel idea off the sidelines and into action (fueled by up to $5,000 in non-dilutive Pebble Funds), but also helps you, as a new Builder, become deeply rooted to guide your venture to become more effective, more profitable, and more redemptive in its impact.
