My good friend, Andrew Nemnich, has inspired me to take on the challenge of Push for Entrepreneurship - not only to challenge myself, but to raise money for innovation and entrepreneurship. My goal is to complete 10 pushups a minute, every minute, for 2 hours. That's 1,200 total pushups! If you are thinking of donating, please consider: $0.01 per pushup = $12, $0.02 per pushup = $24, $0.05 per pushup = $60, $0.10 per pushup = $120, $1.00 per pushup = $1,200 Every dollar is much appreciated, thank you all for your consideration!

The Connecticut Invention Convention (CIC), a 36-year-old, 501c3 nonprofit organization, is the nation’s largest continuously operating program for K-12 student inventors and entrepreneurs.
100% of the proceeds raised by Push For Entrepreneurship are donated to CIC.
CIC’s mission is to teach students creative problem-solving techniques through inventing, innovating, and entrepreneurship, by teachers trained in CIC’s programs. CIC programs have been endorsed by CT’s educational leaders as promoting creativity and critical thinking, and have received prestigious recognition, including trips to the White House Science Fairs.
In Connecticut, more than 17,000 K-12 students in nearly 300 schools annually have CIC classroom-based programs.
Students compete in their schools and winners present their inventions at local and district events and at the state wide convention in May.
Selected state winners advance to the National Invention Convention and Entrepreneurship Expo (NICEE) at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, Michigan, in June.
CIC inventors comprises 50% girls and 26% minority students, with program growth focused in under-served school districts.
CIC inventors pursue entrepreneurship through patenting, investment, and commercialization.
Your donation will be used to provide hundreds of Bridgeport, Norwalk, and New Haven K-12 students the opportunity to participate in a program that will change their lives and our futures.
