IA in the Community
In 2022, IA raised $16,570 with 98 gracious donors. Thanks to the donations from Gator Giving Day 2022, the Innovation Academy was able to bus all first year IA Students to San Felasco Tech City (SFTC) in Alachua, FL, for a site visit. IA students gained insight on live/work/play communities in the local innovation ecosystem, which provided inspiration for their Catalyst projects.
