Equipping Learners and Leaders
Why we do events
At MV Venutures, we are insatiably curious. As we explore, research and expand our own capabilities within our primary place of practice, we believe deeply in sharing and doing our part to build capacity in others. Above all else, by being intentional about blurring the lines between school and the real world, we are leading the way in transforming education and creating a destination for anyone seeking to design a better world.
