Project Foundry originated in the mid 1990s with a Milwaukee non-profit called Homeboyz Interactive. Homeboyz worked to bridge the gap between technological "haves" and "have-nots" by creating a learner-centered, project-based apprenticeship program for young people who might not otherwise have access to sophisticated technology training and apprenticeships to help them succeed in technology-rich work situations. Project Foundry was created to help facilitate those efforts.
In the mid-2000s, original Homeboy Shane Krukowski bought Project Foundry and realigned its scope and functionality to create the product in existence today. A few years later, he was joined by investor Bill Mortimore, Project Foundry's CEO.
Today we work with hundreds of schools and thousands of students across the United States. As ever, we strive to be the change we hope to see in the world. For more information, visit ProjectFoundry.com.
