My Students

My students are some of the brightest young future entrepreneurs I have ever met. They represent a wide array of ideas that will benefit all of society. From creating non-profits to creating apps to help the elderly; my students are filled with brilliant ideas.

We believe in finding tomorrow's problems today in an effort to further our community and ourselves.

This is what an entrepreneur should and always strive to accomplish!

Your donations will lead to the landscape of dreams!

My Project

Solving tomorrows problems today is an entrepreneurs goal. Our quest has been an exciting one as we are serving a population of students whom otherwise wouldn't know about the advantages of having an entrepreneurial mind set. Over the past four years we have seen our students grow from inquiring freshmen who knew nothing of entrepreneurship and business; to seniors who have been admitted to some of the top colleges in the nation.

As the next generation of entrepreneurship grows so must we and the way we teach.

Hence, the reason for requesting help. Throughout the years; classrooms have been designed in a matter that most of the times stifles the creative process. The uncomfortable seating arrangements, the dimness and constant buzz of the fluorescent lights, and of course the endless rows that lead to lack of creativity. In essence, the traditional classroom is the antonym of the creative entrepreneurial mind set. I am asking for help to break this cycle of doldrums, mundane, and stillness. I am on a quest to build the ultimate START UP Lab; a lab that leads to the entrepreneurial creativity that my students seek. A collaborative START UP lab in which thoughts are limitless. A START UP lab in which tomorrows problems are analyzed and solved today. A START UP lab where collaboration is not punished but is encouraged. Most importantly, I want to recreate what my students don't have easy access to. A modern creative collaborative innovation center.

Your donations will go directly to the painting of a white board wall that will extend all the way across the class room. This wall will be the base of many great business model plans and business ideas by our fantastic entrepreneurship students!
