Advance Innovation, Invention and Entrepreneurial Learning
We are opening our doors to ALL audiences and welcoming the next generation of learners, entrepreneurs and innovators regardless of backgrounds or barriers. New learning platforms shaped by our “Innovate” curriculum will reach and inspire learners across the globe. Going further, we will inspire and interact with new audiences through broadcast programs, innovator and entrepreneur in residence programs, speaker series and town halls, and other channels that complement and extend our learning platforms both physically and virtually.
We envision Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation as the ultimate place to convene learners of all backgrounds. Through The Innovation Project, we will activate the floor of the Museum by creating a suite of workspaces, ideation spaces and hubs of innovation. Additionally, we are reimagining Lovett Hall as The Henry Ford’s central learning hub to organize and deploy learning, engagement, accessibility and inclusion programs and initiatives.
We are seeking $50 million through current and endowed support to advance innovation and invention programs, competitions and hubs of innovation, such as:
- State-of-the-art education and entrepreneurial center (Lovett Hall)
- The Henry Ford’s Innovation Nation television series on CBS
- Competition: Michigan, national and global invention conventions in partnership with Invention Convention Worldwide
- Speaker series and town halls
- Innovator/entrepreneur and artist-in-residence programs
- Innovation and entrepreneurial workspaces
- Internships and apprenticeships
- Talent growth and development
