Future 50 class of 2022:See who made the list

Idea: The Future 50 could help usher in the next wave of successful entrepreneurs, creating jobs, opportunities, community engagement and future diversity of thought. The first step is pooling our resources to create a fund—this is the easy part though, and is not within itself uniquely impactful. The unique part here comes from the collection of experiences, wisdom and diversity of thought that lives within the Future 50. We could create a program where participants would receive mentorship and coaching from the Future 50. These people will benefit greatly from working closely with the Future 50. I’m imagining how much I would benefit from time with 50 of the most inspiring people in Columbus.
