On June 14, the Fortitude Fund announced its second cohort of Founders. 12 awesome entrepreneurs received $1,000 grants.
We collaborated with Fort Wayne Soup, a crowdsourcing dinner to help people doing projects that will make our community a better place. 4 presenters vie for a cash award that can reach over $2,000. This particular version of FW Soup was devoted to presenters 18 and under. In keeping with their theme, we featured the four teen Founders from Cohort 2, while announcing everyone of course. Read about each one under the Stories menu.
We were also very pleased to see cohort 1 Fortitude Founder, Sean Rassavong on stage as one of the presenters! And, of course, we were happy that Fortitude Fund Advisory Board Chair Nick Arnett of 1517 Fund was on hand to be our MC!
Enjoy some photos from the evening!
