The KS WELI is specifically built to empower women leaders to achieve their dreams – and more importantly, to understand the necessity and beauty in failure. Our inspiration comes by celebrating the successes of our students and alumni.

What is the KS WELI FoundHER Program?

The FoundHER Program empowers and equips courageous, creative women-identifying founders each month who will change the world. Through resources, events, and marketing we are able to connect these incredible FoundHERs to YOU and our KS WELI community.

If you can see HER you can be HER

The goal of the FoundHER Program is to increase representation to help us redefine leadership and entrepreneurship. By empowering and showcasing women-founded businesses we aim to inspire YOU to find your passion to start or continue to work on your own startup!

We are grateful for the JVF! 🤘💛✨ The Kendra Scott Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute (KS WELI) is pleased to announce our partnership with the Jessica Vollman Foundation (JVF). Named after Jessica Vollman, who passed away in 2020, her family started the JVF to honor her legacy.

As a UT alumna and passionate leader for women in business, Jessica was on a personal mission to empower entrepreneurs through globalization by making education more accessible.

As a proud UT Alum, Jessica discovered KS WELI when it first launched in Fall 2020. Aligned with KS WELI’s mission to “empower women to lead,” Jessica’s family believes she would have been involved with championing the next generation of courageous and creative leaders today. Honoring the legacy of Jessica, JVF has partnered with KS WELI to offer grants and sponsorship opportunities to leaders that are a part of KS WELI’s FoundHER Program. Learn more about our partnership with JVF on the emBOLDen blog!
