Innovation Institute (Ti2) and CuSTEMized share the same mission. We have a long-standing relationship with its founder, Jean Fan, PhD. Dr. Fan developed and led courses at Ti2 for two years.

CuSTEMized engages, encourages, and empowers young girls in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) by providing them with tangible products and educational experiences that foster a positive scientific identity from a young age.


The Innovation Institute is grateful to the team of legal experts from Jones Day who provided pro bono services to make the organization a non-profit, 501(c)(3). This would not have happened without their leadership, expertise, and a generous Ti2 parent who asked them on our behalf.

Jones Day is a global law firm with more than 2,500 lawyers in 43 offices across five continents. The Firm is distinguished by: a singular tradition of client service; the mutual commitment to, and the seamless collaboration of, a true partnership; formidable legal talent across multiple disciplines and jurisdictions; and shared professional values that focus on client needs.

Thermo Fisher Scientific

The Innovation Institute is grateful to Thermo Fisher Scientific for a generous contribution emblematic of our shared values to foster a next generation of scientists. Their gift inspires young girls by equipping them with ‘tools of the trade’ that extend their pursuit of scientific investigation beyond the exciting cuSTEMized session they participated in at Ti2 with scientists who shared their expertise and stories about the career paths.

Thermo Fisher Scientific is the world leader in serving science and with that position comes a great sense of responsibility to the global community. We also contribute by operating responsibly and by giving back to the communities in which we live and work. We are honored to be able to provide STEM kits to the Innovation Institute and its magnificent students who have engaged in the important work of leading with science.
