Andover Newton is pleased to announce the launch of a new endeavor that promises to have a positive and lasting impact on our school: “FREE TO DREAM: Entrepreneurial Initiatives for Andover Newton.” Through this program, members of the wider Andover Newton Community—faculty, staff, students, alums, congregations—can apply for grants to fund creative new initiatives. This undertaking is made possible through The Venture Fund, a fund started last year for this purpose through special gifts from Andover Newton Trustees now totaling $600,000.
A special educational and celebratory event is scheduled for noon-1:00 p.m. on January 26 in the Peck Room. At that time, Myra Hart—herself an entrepreneur who has taught entrepreneurship—will give a brief presentation, “Thinking Like an Entrepreneur.” Her presentation will be followed by an explanation of the FREE TO DREAM grant process. This event is for anyone interested in learning more about this exciting new venture—whether or not you plan to submit a proposal.
