Who is Base 11?

Base 11 is a non-profit, workforce and entrepreneur development company on a mission to close the STEM gap and build a sustainable middle class in America.

 

Base 11 is a connector matching STEM businesses, educational institutions and entrepreneurial opportunities with the high-potential, low-resource students that have shown interest and talent but lack the resources and access needed to allow their interest to grow. Our signature solution, dedicated partners and growing base of support is about much more than just funding, financial aid or general STEM education. It’s a one-of-a-kind strategy specifically designed to change the way people think. It takes a tactical, active approach, specifically finding motivated talent and creating a dedicated path for them to succeed in a very short period of time. Success is defined as STEM-related employment, admission to a four-year college in a STEM-related field or the development of a STEM-related business in less than 24 months.

8 Hours Remaining!

Oct. 12, 2018, 6:59 a.m. PDT by MacKenzie Richter

If you're still designing your logo, you have exactly 8 hours left to complete it!

Here's a Tip:

HeroX recommends innovators plan to submit with at least a 3-hour window of time before the true deadline. Last-minute technical problems and unforeseen roadblocks have been the cause of many headaches. Don't let that be you!

 

We look forward to seeing your logos!
