Growing Minds

  • Jacqui Henderson-Scott, Management
  • Glaucia Vieira, Health & Wellness

In order to encourage children to develop a connection to the food that they eat, Jacqui and Glaucia propose a small home aquaponics system with a fun and educational app for children. This can help children understand the source of their food and how it will impact their future.

Growing Minds tied for third place in the 2016 Social Entrepreneurship Competition.

Jacqui took another idea, Green Peak, to the 2017 Social Entrepreneurship Competition and won second place.

Both Jacqui and Glaucia have graduated from UNC Asheville and Jacqui is enrolled in the MBA Social Entrepreneurship graduate program at Lenoir-Rhyne University. She tells us, "If I had not taken the Ideas to Action class, I may have never discovered my path to social enterprise!"
