Mandy Helton, Louisville Collegiate School, (502) 292-4059, mhelton@loucol.com

Through our work with Adelante Achievers, Louisville Maker Faire, and Byck Elementary, Louisville Collegiate School's vision is to be a private institution with a public purpose. We've now been challenged by a national foundation to take our own entrepreneurship curriculum and share it with students from all schools in Louisville, public and private, with a new high school start-up competition and educators workshop. Venture Connectors Members can help in two ways: 1) signing up as mentors and 2) we still have $34,000 in gap funding to secure by July 1, so if you're passionate about growing this culture in Louisville and want to give, please contact us.
