Our Valued Partners and Sponsors
Working together to spread the entrepreneurial mindset around the world.
Charles Stewart Mott Foundation
Through the generosity of the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, VentureLab is enabling state afterschool networks to develop professional learning opportunities for local afterschool leaders. By increasing the number of afterschool programs offering world-class entrepreneurial learning, we’re helping increase the number of youth that have the opportunity to develop entrepreneurial skills and mindsets.
U.S. Mission to UNESCO
Through the U.S. Mission to UNESCO’s TeachHer initiative, VentureLab has provided training to educators, administrators, and policy makers on how youth entrepreneurship education encourages adolescent girls to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Design, and Math (STEAM) education and careers. Over the past two years, VentureLab has facilitated entrepreneurial learning training for participants from Central America and Latin America.
San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
In partnership with the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Wells Fargo, we are developing workbooks and training for parents of elementary school-aged children to advance entrepreneurial learning opportunities for San Antonio’s youth. VentureLab is proud to help promote a culture of ingenuity and offer opportunities for enrichment by engaging local families.
Sponsored by the 80/20 Foundation, we’re working to establish cohorts of teacher and parent master trainers to increase the amount of entrepreneurial education trainers that can provide entrepreneurial education to the San Antonio community. Furthermore, the Foundation’s generous support will allow for the development of a Spanish language version of training content, increasing the number of teachers and parents that can participate.
