Founder’s Letter

Make a difference. Get involved. Get Strong.

The vision for Push for Entrepreneurship is a combined passion to empower young people, cultivate innovation and energize people to exceed their self-imposed limitations. PFE is attracting energetic people who want to improve the communities they live in and encourage entrepreneurial solutions.

PFE is an extraordinary event where pushers will find self-discovery and personal fulfillment in training hard, pushing limits and thinking big. It’s impossible to have participated and not feel you did something special that very few people would even attempt.

All proceeds of PFE are donated to the Connecticut Invention Convention (CIC), a 36-year-old educational nonprofit that is the nation’s largest continuously operating program for K-12 student inventors and entrepreneurs. CIC’s mission is to teach students creative problem-solving techniques through inventing, innovating and entrepreneurship, through classroom instruction by teachers trained in CIC’s programs. Your donation through the Push for Entrepreneurship Campaign, will be used to give K-12 students an opportunity to participate in CIC’s programs in Bridgeport, Norwalk and New Haven schools. CIC builds an entrepreneurial and innovative mindset by teaching students ‘how to fish’ which will help ‘feed them for a lifetime.’

We want you to encourage you to stretch yourself, become stronger and think bigger. If you are energetic, passionate and committed to making a difference in this world, then please support the event.

Push for Entrepreneurship is a fund-raising event founded by Michael Carter, Founder and Managing Partner of the investment banking firm, Carter Morse & Mathias. In 2017, 39 pushers did over 33,000 push-ups and raised $29,000. This year our goal is to double in size.

Here are the ways you can help:

  • Recruit for us – we need pushers
  • Donate money
  • Volunteer to Judge at a CIC school event or CIC competition
  • Push – start training

Make a difference. Get involved. Get Strong.
