The 2020 AdCap Challenge presented in partnership with Corteva Agriscience, Domino’s and Land O’Lakes took an unexpected turn for everyone involved when COVID-19 shut down in person school and extracurricular activities. That said, student and their teacher remained eager and passionate about participating in this year's Challenge.


On October 30, 96 students from around Missouri came together for an innovation day to tackle challenges around increasing access to or participation in USDA meal programs. Teams worked with mentors including representatives from No Kid Hungry Missouri and Midwest Dairy to develop solutions through rapid prototyping and design thinking exercises. They pitched their ideas to a panel of judges at the end of the day - with the chance to walk away with a $1,000 grant to bring their big idea to life.

Check out this photo gallery of the winners, who each received $1000 from No Kid Hungry MO to bring their big ideas to life this school year! 


This fall, United Healthcare teamed up with GENYOUth to present social entrepreneurship opportunities for local high school students.  We were thrilled to visit Salt Lake City for the very first time, and Pittsburgh for the second time, to meet over 100 brave, curious and bold entrepreneurs!


AdVenture Capital was thrilled to join HYPE this week at their annual High School Youth Leadership Summit, presented by the Food Trust. It was our pleasure to spend some time with so many brave curious and bold young leaders who want to make their schools a healthier place!

Nearly 100 students from the Chicago area came together this September with volunteers from DMI, Inc, to explore, learn about, and ultimately design solutions to food insecurity, food waste, or sustainable nutrition challenges. At the end of the day, students pitched their ideas to a panel of judges for the chance to win funding and support. Thirteen groups walked away with $1000 each to bring their big ideas to life this year.

During the SAP Social Innovation Series in Chicago last year, this bold, creative and curious AdCap team pitched their BIG idea to bring a health and wellness fair to their school to help engage the community and share best practices with both students and staff. This spring they were able to bring their idea to life!

Our own creative, curious and bold AdCap entrepreneurs make the best ambassadors! Prescott, a 9th grader from New Hampshire, presented his AdCap Project to a neighboring school to explain more about what he accomplished and how they could submit their BIG ideas on AdCapYOUth.org for funding and support.


What happens when five creative, curious bold AdCap student entrepreneurs win the titles of SAP Teen Innovators, share their BIG ideas with SAP execs, and visit The Shark Group to meet with Daymond John of TV's "Shark Tank"? Find out here!

Prescott and his AdVenture Capital Project, “Grab N Go Breakfast Cart,” were featured in the Eagle Times recently as he and his Fuel Up to Play 60 team launched their new grab’n’go breakfast.

We love hearing from our AdCap student entrepreneurs and their supporters! The teams at Altoona Middle & High School in Altoona, WI, received funding for two different AdCap Projects at the Fuel Up! Innovation Challenge in February. 


Last week, five AdCap entrepreneurs from Boston, Dallas and Phoenix participated in the SAP Teen Innovator Experience in New York City.  These students and young entrepreneurs won grant funding and support for their AdCap Projects during last November’s SAP Social Innovation Series, and also received a trip to NYC to meet with SAP execs and Daymond John of TV’s “Shark Tank.”



Congratulations to our 2018 SAP Teen Innovators from Boston, Dallas and Phoenix!
