Builders and Backers Heartland Builders Showcase

In just two years, Heartland Forward and many fantastic local sponsors have powered over 500 Builders through Builders + Backers Idea Accelerator. This entirely new on-ramp to entrepreneurship allows ideas at the earliest stages to get off the ground and into action. Below you can hear from a select group of the Builders themselves on what they’re building and how their work is driving economic change in the Heartland.

Each Builder has received $5,000 through our innovative Pebble Fund. If you’d like to make a tax-deductible donation to help a Builder continue building and growing their venture, please click below to let us know.
