Venture U - Startup Funding/Uganda Trip

Hey everybody!
We are seeking to launch our new business, Venture U. We partner with schools in developing countries to give students the training, resources, and connections needed to start and sustain their own businesses! This will empower a whole generation to provide for themselves, create jobs in their communities, and eventually relieve economic poverty.

The goal of this funding site is to inform you that...

- we are looking to raise $45,000 to cover one year's expenses for Venture U.

- $3,500 of this needs to be raised by May 15th.

- this $3,500 will go towards launching our pilot project in Uganda in May (includes our program and computer lab for over 250 students)!

- our goal is to launch our product in 3-4 more schools in the next year. 

For more information about Venture U, please visit our website.
As an aside, we are currently seeking non-profit status.

Thank you in advance for your support!
~The Venture U Team
