About Foundry 805

Established in 2017, NewCo Foundation set out to inspire an entrepreneurial ethos among the youth of Ventura County. What started with the RCMakes apprenticeship program at Rancho Campana High School blossomed into a county-wide initiative to develop and support student-led enterprises across multiple school districts.

The success of NewCo’s on-campus programs supporting hundreds of student internships in businesses created and managed by students, paved the way for the development of Foundry 805.

Foundry 805 is more than a space; it's a dynamic, cohesive environment with programs both on and off-site designed to foster connections, inspire innovation, and contribute significantly to our community's economic growth.

Set to open in 2025, the new 25,000 square-foot mixed-use facility will be a regional economic hub that thrives on innovation, connectivity, and the unique strengths of our local residents and businesses through inclusive placemaking.
