Boss Club Foundation aims to inspire confidence and ignite creativity in students through the pursuit of entrepreneurship.
We are passionate about helping the next generation of students develop the traits uniquely forged through entrepreneurship.
Entrepreneur, pilot, motorcycle racing enthusiast, husband to Daniella, father to Sam, and owner of a small farm with just about every animal you can imagine. My favorite part of Boss Club is seeing kids conquer their fears and develop courage they will carry the rest of their lives no matter what they end up doing.
Entrepreneur, pilot, husband to Corey, and soon-to-be father. My first business was a lemonade stand (classic!) followed by a shoe shining business. My favorite part of Boss Club is seeing the smile on kids' faces when they hold a dollar bill in their hand from their first sale.
Entrepreneur, doula, choir nerd, wife to Jason. My favorite part of Boss Club is seeing the lightbulb moments happen with these kids. They are learning not only important business skills, but also invaluable life lesson that will stay with them into adulthood.
Boss Club was started in 2018 by David Grubbs and Charlie Gasmire as a way to provide practical entrepreneurship education for students across the country. Ranging from self-guided business kits to semester-long school curriculum, Boss Club provides a step-by-step model to starting a business and learning the basics of entrepreneurship. That company has been growing quickly as more and more people want to give their children and students an approachable and tangible way to experience the basics of entrepreneurship and the lessons it teaches.
In an effort to make entrepreneurship accessible to all students and families regardless of means of circumstance, Boss Club Foundation (501(c)(3)) was formed in 2019.
Raising donations from corporations, foundations, and individuals, Boss Club Foundation was able to offer the same game-changing entrepreneurial education but often at no cost to the student. This enables students and families to have their lives changed by entrepreneurship who might not otherwise be able to afford it.
A three-week summer entrepreneurship program was piloted in 2019 where 125 students started their first real business, and the program greatly expanded the following years to reach 900 students in 2020 and 750 students in 2021.
We are striving to equip the next generation with the grit, adaptability, financial literacy and stewardship, and creativity that uniquely comes from pursuing entrepreneurship.

Our programs would not be possible if it weren't for the overwhelming generosity of our amazing donors and partners. Many companies, foundations, and individuals donate to Boss Club Foundation to fund scholarships for students to experience entrepreneurship at no cost. We are grateful to work with such amazing people!
