What: Empowering and cultivating entrepreneurship and an inventor's mind-set in kids. Participants have two hours to do as many push-ups as possible during this time with unlimited breaks. There is no similar event like this.

Where: Fairfield University in Fairfield, CT  and New York City.

When:  CT: November 5th - Morning. NYC: October, TBD

Why:  To provide students from low income CT towns ready access to innovation programs and empower them to become problem solvers

How:  When a community comes together to support those who go without, anything is possible.

The Impact of Push for Entrepreneurship

Since its inception, 186 pushers have participated and raised $250,000 towards innovation education in low income Connecticut towns.  Last year, Connecticut Invention Convention brought programs to 1,500 low-income students through the funds raised by Push for Entrepreneurship. Of these students:

• 83% self-identify as inventors of color

• 58% self-identify as female

• All 1,500 students come from low-income communities
