The Bravo Family Foundation (“BFF”, “we” or “us”) is a nonprofit organization committed to reaching underserved communities, individuals and groups in Puerto Rico who face limited access to high-quality learning opportunities, know-how and financial support. The BFF partners directly with entrepreneurs, nonprofit organizations, universities, and grassroots groups to identify and support selected cohorts of young people to participate in our programs. The BFF’s programs include 1) the Rising Entrepreneurs Program which provides entrepreneurs with knowledge, access, and capital as a means to create a more inclusive and sustainable ecosystem for tech companies in Puerto Rico; and 2) the Exceptional Community Leaders Program, which provides support to marginalized communities in Puerto Rico by providing access to specialized facilitators; and any other program that BFF may offer in the future, (collectively referred to as, the “Services”). As part of the Services, the BFF also provides exclusive content to members of these programs, as further discussed below.
