students at smsReady – set – solve! From the first day of Saint Mary’s one-of-a-kind entrepreneurship camp, girls are asked to get creative and solve problems that are meaningful to them and relevant for their community.

By day, participants will learn leadership skills such as public speaking, business etiquette, conflict resolution and more! Then they will have a chance to apply their newly-acquired skills with visits to some of Raleigh’s most innovative businesses - meeting young start-up companies as well as organizations which have become community influencers. Ranked as one of the top 10 best places to live by the U.S. News & World innovators hubReport, Raleigh is the place to be for girls wanting to meet and learn from today’s innovators and entrepreneurs. In the evening, participants will collaborate on a week-long project, culminating in a hands-on event they own from start to finish. In between, they have free time for swimming, games, and other fun activities.

Each year, the Innovators Hub offers a new focus to ensure our girls can continue inventing, exploring, and discovering. Girls should come prepared to think creatively, solve problems, take risks, learn from mistakes, and try again. At Saint Mary’s Innovators Hub, a girl’s voice matters and the path to discovering her purpose and passion starts here!
