Venture for America is a program for young, talented grads to spend two years in the trenches of a start-up with the goal that these graduates will become socialized and mobilized as entrepreneurs moving forward. VFA, which brought 15 recent grads to Downtown Project over the past 2 years, is expanding in Las Vegas and is seeking for companies interested in interviewing and potentially hiring 2014 Fellows as full-time team members.

The team at The Innevation Center shares the mission of the Nevada STEM Coalition and some facts about STEM:
- Did you know that 80-90% of all jobs of the future will require skills in science, technology, engineering, or math?
- Did you know that by about the 4th grade, many students have already decided whether or not they are good in science and math?
- Did you know Nevada’s students are underperforming in math and science, especially our minority and at-risk populations?
