Welcome to the ELITE Foundation Press Room

Introducing the ELITE Foundation

We are thrilled to announce the official launch of the ELITE Foundation, a groundbreaking social enterprise based in Indianapolis, Indiana. Our mission is to foster, support, and empower underserved entrepreneurial communities through comprehensive programs in entrepreneurship, media, wellness, and technology. We believe that providing the right tools, resources, and training can cultivate a peak mindset, enabling individuals to achieve self-driven goals and sustainable success.

Our Mission

At the ELITE Foundation, we are dedicated to creating paths to progress. We believe that ideas are the foundation of society, and by nurturing and developing these ideas, we can drive significant change. Our goal is to empower individuals with the mindset and resources they need to reach their full potential and contribute positively to their communities.

Key Programs and Initiatives

1. ELITE Fellowship Program

Our flagship program supports individuals in building and enhancing their personal and professional brands. The Fellowship offers immersive experiences like the Silicon Valley Brand House, where participants collaborate to develop market strategies and refine their entrepreneurial skills.

2. ELITE G.A.R.B. (Go After Real Beliefs)

ELITE G.A.R.B. is the official lifestyle apparel brand of the Foundation. All proceeds from this brand support our programs and grants. The brand embodies the "Boss Up, Be Elite" mindset, encouraging individuals to strive for their peak goals through stylish and meaningful apparel.

3. ENsuite Revitalization Initiative

This initiative focuses on revitalizing key areas in Indianapolis. Our first two projects under this initiative are:

  • ENsuite on Monument Circle: Aimed at transforming Circle Tower into a vibrant community hub.
  • ENsuite on College: A residential initiative designed to provide sustainable living solutions for underserved communities.

4. Paths to YEN (Young ELITE Nation)

Our youth program serves students in grades 3-12, helping them identify their paths and develop the mindset necessary for success. Inspired by the discipline of a Japanese dojo, the program focuses on four roles: artist, student, athlete, and producer.

5. The ELITE Coalition Network

This media network syndicates positive, progressive content to promote a mindset of growth and empowerment. Content is produced by our in-house team, ELITE fellowship participants, and network partners, all aimed at helping individuals become the best versions of themselves.
