About VentureLab

VentureLab envisions a world where every child, regardless of gender, race or economic status, is empowered to fully participate in creating the future through entrepreneurial and STEM education. 

The mission of VentureLab is to create the next generation of diverse innovators and changemakers by making entrepreneurship education accessible to ALL youth.

At VentureLab, we’re creating the next generation of creative and skilled workers. That’s why we intentionally design programs where students can actually practice the kind of innovation that entrepreneurs do to bring their creative ideas to life, and learn how to innovate in any career they may choose.

We believe everyone is an entrepreneur! Entrepreneurship isn’t just about starting companies; it is a skillset and a way of thinking. The core of entrepreneurship is building a solution to a problem. It involves identifying needs, brainstorming creative solutions, having empathy for customer’s needs, innovating, and taking calculated risks.

VentureLab is reaching over 630,000 students, educators, and caregivers in 155+ countries and all 50 US States and our vision is to be the global leader in youth entrepreneurship education.

We provide scholarships for schools wanting to add entrepreneurship and innovation education, training and coaching for teachers, business models/budgeting tools, and mentoring and materials for students without access to help change the face of entrepreneurship.
