VentureLab is steadfast in its mission to cultivate the next wave of diverse innovators and changemakers. As Global Entrepreneurship Week unfolds, our dedication to this cause has never been stronger. We’ve embarked on an ambitious end-of-year campaign with a goal to raise $10,000 by December 31st. But this isn’t just about numbers; it’s about empowering young minds and shaping the leaders of tomorrow. Let’s delve into Erin’s journey, a testament to the transformative power of our programs.
Erin’s Journey: From Dreamer to Doer
At just nine years young, Erin didn’t just dream—she realized. Turning her passion into profit, she launched a thriving jewelry venture. With guidance from VentureLab’s Spark Startup Materials & ESTEAM® Mentorship Program, Erin refined her entrepreneurial acumen, understood her target market, and crafted a robust business strategy. Her appearance at the Black Girls Do STEM’s fall showcase was a resounding success. Here, she illustrated the science behind her jewelry creation and impressively raked in over $200 in sales. Erin’s accomplishments underscore the transformative effect of early-stage entrepreneurship education.
