How Much of a Difference Can

2 Blocks 

From the Most Innovative Square Mile on the Planet Make?

It’s time for a change!

Cambridge is a booming epicenter for Innovation.

However, the City’s opportunities are not equally shared. Too few Cambridge educated youth move towards innovative careers in our own backyard.

Our research has shown that greater access to educational opportunities will lead to the change we seek.

Our educational system was designed for a different era. The incremental top down solutions have not been satisfactory or sufficient.

We are the teen creatives at Innovators for Purpose!
