Nena Ugwuomo, CEO of Student Dream, founded the non-profit accelerator in March 2014 driven “to see an incredibly diverse generation of leaders educated and equipped to solve problems, reach their creative potential and contribute to the vibrancy of local, national and global economies through innovation.” This Howard University grad has used the organization to enable more than 200 students to transform ideas into companies and raise $60,000 in start-up capital.
