For over 20 years, VentureWell has worked to support, train, and foster networks to ensure the next generation of science and technology innovators realize – and maximize – their potential in bringing their ideas to impact. Our early-stage innovator support programs are modeled after our E-Team program, our initial offering to support and train student inventors and entrepreneurs. Over the years, we’ve cross fertilized best practices and forward-thinking curriculum to continually improve and evolve all of our early-stage innovator programs, which have supported over 2,000 student inventor-entrepreneurs to date.
Our breadth of experience in training and supporting early-stage innovators as well as program data enables us to produce Innovator Insights: Illuminating the Path for Tomorrow’s Inventors. The report highlights valuable findings and best practices around embarking on a journey in innovation and entrepreneurship.

Innovator Insights: Illuminating the Path for Tomorrow’s Inventors is made possible by USAID’s Center for Accelerating Innovation and Impact, The Lemelson Foundation, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
