Hello. Our foundation has been present for over 10 years. We use entrepreneurship to empower communities.


To boldly and economically move the culture forward.


To inspire economic well-being, through entrepreneurial action, advocacy, and education.

Julian and Brittany Young Foundation, formerly the Start Center for Entrepreneurship, was started in 2012 to have a long-range impact on multi-generational poverty by developing entrepreneurial talent in underserved communities.


We are committed to the growth and development of inner-city communities and their potential for prosperity. We believe that entrepreneurship and economic gardening are the keys that will unlock this prosperous future amongst economically-challenged demographics. We do this through entrepreneurial and talent development programs, wealth education, small business grants, and advocacy.
