Innoventure helped us to gain financial knowledge, we really had to look at our budget and spend our money wisely.

8th grade Innoventure participant

My Innoventure Students no longer ask me why they are learning certain things in their classes. Innoventure helped them recognize the connections between in-class learning and real-world implementation.

My child had an incredible experience not only learning about the business side of things, but actually making money of her own!

It’s great to have a resource that helps kids begin thinking about how to do things like create a job for themselves.
