Founder of Innovate Academy


Patricia Simes is founder of Innovate Academy. Ms. Simes is a Certified Business and Entrepreneurship Coach with a degree in Business from the University of Wisconsin. Ms. Simes also has 25 years of experience in the corporate arena training and helping people reach their goals.  One of my favorite sayings is: "Most people see things and say "Why" But I dream things that never were and say "Why not?"  I wanted those with busy schedules desiring to enhance their knowledge about the “whats” and “hows” of entrepreneurship to have an opportunity through an online platform without the pressures of maintaining a class schedule. Let the entrepreneurial journey begin.
