Project Venture is a competition for high school students with disabilities who participate in The Able Trust High School High Tech program. Project Venture teams prepare and present a comprehensive business plan to promote and sell a new product or service.

Students who participate in this competition gain important skills they will need as they transition out of high school into post-secondary education or training, or go directly into the workforce:

  • Introduce students to entrepreneurism and the entrepreneurial spirit.
  • Facilitate students working in teams on real-world applications.
  • Allow students to develop workplace communication skills and other soft skills.

Enable students to learn by doing.

During the competition, a panel of judges review the business plan and commercials submitted by all Project Venture teams. Three teams are selected by this panel to compete in person in a second round of judging that takes place in front of an audience.
