InventiveLabs helps people identify their passion and assists them in turning it into a livelihood. We have a name for people who join our program - Inventives! They are people that think way outside the box. Some may have a learning difference like ADHD, dyslexia or autism; some may not. All "brain types" are welcome to join us, as the combination of different thinkers can lead to amazing things!
We provide acceptance, mentorship, guidance and support for those looking to find a new direction for their life story.
We offer various PROGRAMS for people to choose from to meet their goals:
Have you honed in on an idea that you think is the next big thing? Do you need help with formulating your business model? Would you like to win a cash prize to fund it? Do you or a business partner have a "learning difference"? Then this competition may be for you!
Got ideas? Maybe too many of them? Our Signature program is for individuals looking for an alternative path to success with the goal of launching a business or new career. We help you identify your passion and turn it into a livelihood. And, if the Pitch Competition is interesting to you, this is a great introductory program.
Gap Year Experience
We offer a modified version of our signature program for college bound and college-age people to explore potential career choices and related majors. If you have an entrepreneurial project you want to explore, this may be the Gap Year for you.
