Westlake Innovation Fund

Entrepreneurial Education at Work

Pitch Night is Friday, May 18!

Our mission is to bring authentic, rigorous entrepreneurial education to high school students in Eanes ISD and the broader community.

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSOR INVESTORS

The Westlake Business Incubator was initially created and funded by a core group of business people from the Westlake community. These Investors wanted to create an opportunity for kids that would ignite the same entrepreneurial passion that fueled so many of them as young business leaders across industries, by sharing real world business experiences and lessons learned. The initial Investors partnered with Eanes ISD, raised funds, built a state-of-the-art classroom and, with a curriculum based on the Lean Start-Up program, began their first class in the 2016-2017 academic year. They enlisted more than 60 industry experts from the community to be volunteer Mentors and Coaches.

Five teams of Westlake High School students will compete for $10,000 at the 2nd Annual Westlake HS Business Incubator Pitch Night Friday, May 18 at the WHS Performing Arts Center. The top four teams are pre-selected to present to professional investors May 18, as well as one Wild Card Team, voted on at Pitch Night. To register for the free event, visit goo.gl/bqu2LC.
