At VentureLab, we’re creating the next generation of innovators and changemakers by equipping educators, parents, and youth leaders with materials to teach the entrepreneurial mindset. Our programs promote fun, hands-on, experiential learning that focuses on strengthening kids’ entrepreneurial thinking, ingenuity, creativity, and confidence. They encourage young people, and especially girls, to be independent thinkers—to venture outside the box and create unique, norm-defying solutions for the challenges they are passionate about solving. We believe the true value in learning and practicing entrepreneurship lies in nurturing and growing an overall mindset and skillset–the ability to be confident and creative, to learn from failure, and to work well with others to bring your ideas to life. Our free online curriculum (available at venturelab.org) and professional development trainings foster courageous, enterprising youths who dare to dream and do!
