The New FED

In honor of its 30th year anniversary, The Foundation for Enterprise Development (FED) transitioned from an operating foundation to a new ownership structure, a donor advised fund, called the Beyster Foundation for Enterprise Development (BFED). Starting July 1, 2017, as a purely granting organization, the BFED will continue support for research, education, and services that advance innovation, entrepreneurship and broad-based ownership.

We encourage you to browse this site to find out more about the history of the FED, as well as the major ongoing programs at the Beyster Institute at UC San Diego, Rutgers University, University of Michigan, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Academy of Management that have been established by the FED and are expected to be a continued resource for scholars, educators, and entrepreneurs.Print
