We foster collaboration among the best minds from research labs, classrooms, and beyond to advance innovation and entrepreneurship education and to provide unique opportunities for STEM students and researchers to fully realize their potential to improve the world.

Founded with support from The Lemelson Foundation, we also receive substantial funding from the National Science Foundation, the United States Department of State, the United States Agency for International Development, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and many others. Our success illustrates the result of more than two decades of forward-thinking programming to build a vibrant innovation and entrepreneurship community in support of innovators globally.
