New Partnership - INCubator
The LPEF is the proud investment partner in the Lake Park High School INCubator program.

Join our team of venture capitalists to help us launch the INCubator program at Lake Park High School!

In the INCubator course, students engage in hands-on, entrepreneurial learning by developing a business of their own. The course culminates in a Pitch Night event, where students present their business plan in a “shark tank” competition. Winning projects will be awarded scholarships from our INCubator funding partners. The students’ classroom learning experience is enhanced by local business professionals who serve as team mentors and classroom coaches.

How can I get involved?
  • Be a classroom coach or mentor.
  • Be a founding donor and/or sponsor by partnering with the Lake Park Educational Foundation.

There will be an information meeting on Thursday, March 19 at 6:00 p.m at Lake Park West Campus. Learn more about this exciting new program on the INCubator website .
