Invention and Inclusive Innovation (i3) is the groundbreaking learning initiative that intersects the power of invention with the liberation of entrepreneurship to allow real people to identify real problems in their community and create Real solutions. Our proven approach gets students on the pathway to invention where they may reap the benefits of the innovation economy.
The Lemelson-MIT program has become a national leader in efforts to prepare the next generation of inventors and entrepreneurs. Our work focuses on the expansion of opportunities for young people to learn ways inventors find and solve problems that matter. We are devoted to bringing invention education opportunities to all students, while prioritizing work with young women and Black, indigenous populations, Latinx and other people of color. Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion aims to remedy historic inequities among those who develop inventions, protect their intellectual property and commercialize their creations.
