Rising Innovator is an organization dedicated to inspiring, educating, mentoring and supporting young entrepreneurs. This website contains tools and information designed to help youth start and run businesses, and to help their parents help them.
Our mission is to:
- Facilitate a mindset and skillset to change the world
- Improve the world through entrepreneurship
- Help young entrepreneurs create thriving businesses
Here’s the big picture: Our ultimate goal is to make the world a better place. You don’t improve the world by accident. And you don’t improve the world alone. And you don’t improve it in one fell swoop; you improve it one piece at a time.
Our piece is young innovators — people who come up with ways to make our lives more convenient, or make the world more fair, cleaner, more neighborly, more efficient or in some small (or big) way better. Innovators can become wealthy entrepreneurs, but we believe the first and most important step is to become more skilled and knowledgeable and to develop ways to make the world a better place for everyone. If you succeed in those goals, success (or at least happiness) will follow.
Innovation and entrepreneurship are also excellent ways for economically disadvantaged people to create bridges that allow them to narrow the gap between the haves and have nots of the world.
We hope this website gives young people all the resources they need to become innovators and entrepreneurs.
Rising Innovator has begun trialing the first version of our new entrepreneurial curriculum, Business Innovation Journey. Rising Innovator is seeking middle schools to help test and improve this free course.
