The Henry Ford Innovation Project
No innovator left behind. No entrepreneur excluded. The Henry Ford has a long-standing focus on inclusiveness, with the goal of making its experiences, artifacts and learning environments available to everyone — especially those who traditionally have been left behind. The Henry Ford’s Youth Mentorship Program (YMP), for example, has been offering at-risk teens the opportunity to develop life and work skills on-site at The Henry Ford for nearly three decades.
As the William Davidson Initiative for Entrepreneurship ramps up for its official launch in 2019, it’s having the vision to see the program succeed for decades to come that also counts. For The Henry Ford, Ambassador Ronald N. Weiser is
one of those visionaries who is always looking for ways to positively impact the future and inspire our next generations.
The Henry Ford announced today the acquisition of one of General Motors’ first self-driving test vehicles. Originally making its debut testing on the streets of San Francisco in 2016, the car marked a significant step in the development of self-driving technology and was one of GM’s first test vehicles to operate on public roads autonomously. The vehicle represents a milestone for The Henry Ford as well. It is the first autonomous car to be added to the museum’s collection.
The Henry Ford announced today the launch of the William Davidson Foundation Initiative for Entrepreneurship, made possible by a $1.5 million grant, that allows the institution to provide the next generation of entrepreneurs with hands-on learning
opportunities. This initiative includes an Entrepreneur-in-Residence program, a public speaker series featuring influencers in entrepreneurship, workshops and the expansion of youth programming that leverages the institution’s Archive
of American Innovation to create a deep and engaging understanding of invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship from a young age.
Teachers are tasked to blend technology with teaching every day. But there are a select few who are adding true innovation inside the classroom. Rachel Lamb is one of them.
William Davidson Foundation and The Henry Ford will inspire emerging and seasoned entrepreneurs and future game changers to collaborate, learn and grow.
No innovator left behind. No entrepreneur excluded.
