Welcome

The Houston Entrepreneurs' Forum was organized in 1985 to promote entrepreneurship among its members as well as the general public. It meets for breakfast the last Tuesday of each month. It provides an excellent opportunity to listen to a successful entrepreneur share their experiences and to network with individuals interested in entrepreneurship.

To date, 90% of the KIPPsters who have left the KIPP Houston middle schools have gone on to college, and 51% of those former middle school KIPPsters have graduated from college (compared with a national college graduation rate for low income children of 8%).
