Innovative Learning Starts with You

Passion Mandatory. Experience not necessary.

  • A course in a box! All the lesson planning is done for you. Each lesson features detailed preparation, step-by-step instructions, teaching tips, and all the slides and handouts.

  • Flexible implementation. Our entrepreneurial curriculum features 90 minute lessons with activities that can be taught sequentially or plugged into existing coursework, after-school (OST) programs, or camps.

  • Cross-curricular connections. Entrepreneurship demands a varied skillset. Lessons bring to life STEAM, maker, and design thinking concepts under the umbrella of entrepreneurship, especially for girls!

  • 21st century skills made accessible. Critical thinking, creativity, problem solving, communication and collaboration are explicitly taught. Guided reflections after each activity deepen understanding.

  • Curriculum designed with girls in mind. Lessons emphasize real-world connections and problem-solving for a cause. Whenever possible, we use real-life examples of female entrepreneurs.

That’s why we create free entrepreneurship curriculum lessons that can be implemented in many different ways adapted to your students’ needs!

People of all backgrounds can facilitate a VentureLab program and many of our facilitators don’t have experience teaching entrepreneurship. To get started, all you need is a space to accommodate students and internet to access our ebooks (or printed copies of our lessons).
