Innovation Corps is a movement founded by Dr. VA Shiva Ayyadurai for helping the development of innovation among high school students in inner cities and villages across the globe, with the support of local philanthropists, professionals and businesses.
Innovation Corps aim to provide support to high school students across the globe that will help them to develop their ideas into practical businesses. With the cooperation of local philanthropists, professionals and businesses, selected selected students will receive advice, everyday practical help and financial support in setting up their business. Legal, marketing, book keeping and financing are some of the areas of support the student will receive.
The Innovation Corps program consist of various levels of support. The program starts with the high school students aged 14 to 18 years filling out an application form. The application should contain such details as student’s name, address, school details, mentor’s name (such as a school teacher or a youth program director locally in student’s area), and the innovative idea that the student is seeking to develop into a practical business.
If you are a student of high school in Wilmington, Delaware or Newark, New Jersey, please submit your application for grant. A team of eminent entrepreneurs and business professionals will review all applications and select two teams to receive the grant consisting of cash and services.
