Edward Lowe Foundation

The Edward Lowe Foundation is a national nonprofit organization that supports entrepreneurship through research, recognition, and educational programs that are delivered through entrepreneur support organizations (ESOs). Established in 1985, the foundation focuses on second-stage companies—those that have moved beyond the start-up phase and seek significant, steady growth.

Among our educational programs are leader retreats held at our 2,600-acre learning campus near Cassopolis, Michigan. These retreats help entrepreneurs address critical challenges encountered in the second stage, such as building a management team, developing infrastructure, creating a strong company culture, and achieving profitable growth. Each course builds upon the previous one and revolves around inflection points: how your organization is changing, how your team is changing, and how you as a leader are responding to these changes. In addition, the foundation provides chapter chair training and advanced facilitator programs that are focused on making peer groups more effective.
