The Conrad Foundation & FINAO

FINAO was recently contacted by the founder of the Conrad Foundation to discuss a Programs Partnership.  The Conrad Foundation believes that FINAO's mission and platform is serendipitously aligned with their own – for the empowerment and development of thought-leadership in students.  

Established in 2008, the Conrad Foundation honors the legacy of Apollo 12 astronaut, Charles “Pete” Conrad, and his four decade passion for innovation and entrepreneurship.  The foundation runs the Conrad Spirit of Innovation Challenge for youth in the U.S. and internationally.   Each year, the Innovation Challenge gathers high school students (age 13-18) from around the world to collaborate, innovate and learn.
