Entrepreneurship Education for K-12 | VentureLab


VentureLab is a finalist for the 2016 CLASSY Awards!

Behind every invention there are engineers, artists, thinkers, and dreamers. Their passions are different, but they share an entrepreneurial spirit to change the world.


Why Entrepreneurship Education?

It's about more than just business

Entrepreneurs are found in fields ranging from business to art, from medicine to mathematics. It’s not just about content, but about the entrepreneurial mindset – about empowering students to feel free to take risks and learn from failure, and giving them the tools and confidence to truly believe that they can turn their ideas into reality.

By 2020, 40% of our workforce will be self-employed. Today’s  young people need the acumen to recognize an opportunity when they see one, and the drive and grit to pursue a solution all the way to the end.

Meet Our Founder

As a university professor and entrepreneur, Dr. Cristal Glangchai observed how hard it was to get students passionate about science and technology. She created VentureLab to teach students at a young age to think like entrepreneurs—by anticipating needs, innovating, creating, and taking calculated risks. When students are exposed to entrepreneurial thinking, a profound change takes place; they learn to problem solve, think critically and creatively, and become more confident in their ability to tackle challenges.
