At Elf, we've been working on an incubator concept with a few partners to help nurture talent. Driven by a desire to support excellence and initiative, we're working on building an incubator for young people that supports entrepreneurial ideas. We would like to begin this initiative with 10 promising individuals in the United States by next year and then expand to Canada by 2018.
Several companies and individuals have also built their own accelerator and incubator programs to nurture talent. We're inspired by this.
Our goal here is to provide promising people with initiative an avenue for accelerated learning and developing their own ideas to full prototypes. We hope to help these students gain confidence in their own abilities with the room to explore ideas and in an environment that nurtures talent.
To further support this initiative, we also are looking to provide merit-based scholarships so that students in our incubator can still attend colleges of their choice that they have applied to and been accepted in. Through the help of our partners, we aim to fund their education for the full 4 years while also supporting their entrepreneurial endeavor. In this way, a student will have both a college education and ideally, a business that they can run when they graduate.
To support, participate and learn more about this endeavor, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
