Founders4Schools logo


Founders4Schools is an award-winning educational-tech charity working towards a vision where children and young people are given the best start in life, no matter their background. They connect children and young people with inspirational role models to improve their aspirations, fulfil their potential and prepare them for the rapidly changing world of work.

Founders4Schools was founded in 2011 by serial entrepreneur and angel investor, Sherry Coutu CBE. Working within the tech sector, Sherry recognised a burning need to prepare children and young people for the ever-changing workplace - and saw an opportunity to use the latest technology to level the playing field and improve social mobility. In partnership with LinkedIn, Edubase and Duedil, they created a tech platform and became a registered charity in 2015, dedicated to improving the life chances of children and young people across the country.
