Instead of a fundraising gala, we designed an experience that put our students at the center.

What is Revival?

Revival is a one-day accelerator that explores the power of an idea. On August 10th, students and professionals will work together to bring kids’ business ideas to life. We provide the space and the students—all you need is a desire to be inspired.

 

Want to see local students doing extraordinary things? You’re invited to attend Revival as an audience member!

What have past participants said?

How does it work?

Dream + Discover

Throughout the summer, student interns ask “How might we improve our community?” to understand what needs to change and define which factors are critical for success. By the end of summer, they have a business idea and a plan—but they still need a mentor.

Design + Develop

That’s where sponsors come in! Top companies in the Twin Cities each sponsor a group of their employees in becoming Revival mentors for a day. These professionals have been identified as not just technically skilled, but the kind of individual that our kids can look up to.

Deploy

Students and professionals will spend the day prototyping, testing, laughing, and racing towards the finish line. Before you know it, you’ll be proudly watching students present their ideas. The audience will vote for their favorite, and then we’ll celebrate with good food and drinks.
