This summer, Geoffrey Michael Hubona from Lookout Mountain, Ga., was chosen to take part in a unique academic and career oriented development experience, “Business Innovation: Six Days to Start-Up” at Yale University’s Pauli Murray College of Business.

“Business Innovation: Six Days to Startup” is one of the Envision family of programs (www.envisionexperience.com) that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom. “Business Innovation: Six Days to Startup” chooses outstanding high school students across the nation to participate in a program that culminates in presenting ideas for business start-ups to nationally recognized venture capitalists.

Mr.l Hubona is a rising senior at Gordon Lee High School.  He is the son of Dr. and Mrs. Geoffrey Hubona (Laura) of Lookout Mountain. He participates in varsity cross-country and track at Gordon Lee. He excels in Gordon Lee’s mathematics, engineering and business classes. Upon his graduation from Gordon-Lee, he plans to attend Texas A&M University, where his father currently teaches information systems and data analytics in the business school.

“Business Innovation: Six Days to Start-up” is a great opportunity for high-achieving scholars to get outside the classroom and see, through hands-on interactive learning, how to innovate and think creatively,” said Andrew Potter, the chief academic officer for Envision. “These students, who have already proven themselves academically, will be challenged to work on real-world, student-created projects to bring their studies and career interests to life.”

Since 1985, Envision programs have served more than 800,000 students in more than 145 countries, with programs designed to help students develop the leadership, scholarship and career skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive college and career landscape.
