Lake Zurich High School is offering students an authentic collaborative, entrepreneurship experience with INCubatoredu. The Foundation is proud to help fund this program. Students have the opportunity to create and fully develop their own product or service. Entrepreneurs and business experts serve as coaches and mentors guiding student teams.

How can you help? COACH: SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE! Be in the classroom working directly with the teacher and students to teach a lesson about one of the above topics. Lesson materials such as presentations are already created, ready for you to use as is or to customize as you wish. MENTOR STUDENTS! Work with a group of students throughout the school year to help them develop their idea, test their business concepts and teach them how to think with a business mind. As a mentor the goal is to meet weekly with your student team from about October thru the end of school year.
