InnoVationGirls provides an encouraging platform for risk-taking, growth, and exploration. Teams of girls are tasked with solving real problems for real companies. They influence the future of those companies and get financially rewarded for it. These projects along with the “Shark Tank” & “Launch Your Product” programs give them the framework and confidence to explore their own ideas and ventures. They’ve been there before so they have the confidence and skills to do it again.
InnoVationGirls coaches are dedicated and qualified business, innovation and STEM leaders. Our mentors are real business experts who challenge, encourage and guide your daughter through design-based thinking. They work in small teams and our coaches are readily available for continued support.
innoVationGirls helps girls hold onto the confidence and curiosity they were born with during a critical time in their development. Today our daughters are exposed to the stereotype of coding and robots as the main driver for STEM. For us STEM is about becoming an innovative designer to make a difference in the world. We gradually buildup to coding and robotics.
We bring modules of exponential technology, to girls 10-18 years old, to design the world they want to live in.
We go from Systematic Inventive Thinking to Gamification, Storyboarding, Business Model innovation to 3D modeling in VR (Gravity Sketch) for prototyping sustainable products they want to see in the world. They ideate, collaborate, compete to build and present solutions to real issues faced by real companies.
Our process is simple yet powerful. Learn our inventive thinking methodology, apply it in virtual reality while working on real world projects, then go on to coach and lead teams of younger members. As you grow with us you will have the opportunity to be a board member and even gain equity in the business. The opportunities with innoVationGirls are limitless!
