VentureWell is a higher education network that cultivates revolutionary ideas and promising inventions. For nearly twenty years, we’ve been on a mission to launch new ventures from an emerging generation of young inventors driven to improve life for people and the planet. Student inventors are at the heart of VentureWell. We help cultivate their skills and creativity and bring their ideas to market. Often we are first to validate, support and guide an idea with potential, allowing student entrepreneurs to take the important first step toward launching a business. Our support has given rise to companies such as Ecovative Design and Sanergy—recognized as some of the most innovative and environmentally friendly companies in the world. Faculty are key to the success of the student inventors we support. VentureWell has spent the last twenty years revolutionizing higher education by building a community of faculty dedicated to instilling invention and entrepreneurship across campus. We fund faculty to create new courses and programs in which students develop inventive ideas and gain the entrepreneurial skills they need to bring inventions to market. With VentureWell’s support, almost 600 new courses and programs have been established across 160 campuses nationwide to transform education, especially in science, engineering and business. VentureWell makes strategic financial investments that have exponential impact. We’ve given over $7.5 million in grants to over 500 student teams – and with that they’ve raised more than $620 million to launch new businesses. More than half of these startup ventures are still in business today, operating in over 50 countries and reaching millions of people with ground-breaking innovations. One exciting recent invention for mothers in low-resource settings will deliver medicine and nutrients to infants while they breastfeed. And there are many more.
