Here's what our learners and schools say

"Founda allowed me to experience entrepreneurship in a fun, hands on way. Now I run my own successful business."

Hunter, founder of Coastal Cutting Boards

"I definitely didn’t think at the age of 14 I would be running my own business. Thanks to Founda I gained the confidence & knowledge to become a young entrepreneur."

Mia, Kirafiki Collection, founder & Business Owner.

"We have had two children attend the Founda Entrepreneur Education Program and both have enjoyed it immensely. Our children loved the hands on approach to learning and were very keen to attend all sessions. We are super proud of our young entrepreneurs and now successful business owners. Thanks Dan & Team.

Scott & Nicky, Parents

"We’ve got students who are going to do bike washing and simple servicing, photography, lots of bath scrubs and soap, recycled wood key-rings. It’s so inspirational seeing them get in to it isn’t it!"

- Coolum State High School
