Advancing The Next Wave of Collegiate Founders of Color

slide 2:

Message From the Founder Thank you for taking the time to learn about Student Dream. We execute the critical work of unlocking the power of a dream. Since moving to New York City in 2012 I’ve been amazed at the power of innovation and entrepreneurship. It’s ability to solve problems expand the limits of creativity and create jobs is clear. However there continues to be a lack of experience among some of the most brilliant minds in our world today – collegiate students of color. They’re the future leaders our world depends on yet lack the resources needed to turn their ideas into great companies. This is why I created Student Dream. Our programs aim to connect millions of collegiate students of color to the skills people and funding needed to succeed. So far we’ve launched 7 companies that are already making their mark on the world. We’re literally shaping what innovation looks like. As an integral part of the innovation economy I invite you to join in the dreams of thousands of students looking to use the tools of innovation entrepreneurship and imagination to create new companies and help sustain existing ones. What’s your Student Dream -Nena Ugwuomo Founder President
