Changing the
Future of Child
Development

Futurebound is a movement of changemakers fueling innovation in child development. Together, we are creating a future where all children are bound for success.

the problem

5 out of 10 children
in the U.S. start
a step behind.

The first decade of a child's life lays the foundation for a lifetime of health and success.

But existing approaches to learning, health and development are not meeting the needs of all young children. Half of children in the United States enter kindergarten unprepared to learn, and more than half are unable to read proficiently by third grade.

This affects the future of our children, communities and economy. We can’t afford to wait. Child development’s most complex challenges must be tackled today.  

our solution
We believe breakthrough solutions to child development’s toughest issues will emerge when innovative ideas, investment and people collide.

These problems are too big for one organization to tackle alone. That’s why entrepreneurs, investors, nonprofits and other public- and private-sector leaders are coming together to create an innovation ecosystem in Colorado that is focused on accelerating impact for all young children.

Forward. Together.
