Canyon Lake student Jesse Rupe was awarded a $10,000 grant from the Be More Fund by the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS). The Be More Fund was created to acknowledge the positive, future-focused work that students, young professionals, and educators are doing.
Through the program, Rupe participated in a competition at NSHSS’ Scholars Day in Atlanta, where he presented his startup, JHR Innovators, to a panel of judges. He was one of 10 winners to each receive a $10,000 grant based on his professional presentation of his creative and viable plan to make the world a better, more equitable place.
Poverty and climate change are just two of the biggest issues the planet is facing. There are many ways to alleviate these challenges, one way being through the use of technology and artificial intelligence (AI).
To solve the problems that lead to these larger issues, Rupe created his own startup, which begins with a three-part foundation: developing the Universal Model(UM) endeavor, creating self-constructing rail robotics to mimic biology and create sustainable infrastructures, and using the UM for business advising and build a UM community. The UM’s insights into efficiency and reality will improve lives, increase democratic principles within corporations, better ethics, and more.
JHRI will not tackle the 1000s of components alone. Instead of reinventing the wheel for each global issue, it will create UM systems and tools for everyone to collaborate. JHRI will create best-in-class, user-oriented, pro-job products. It will merge human and AI potential while helping other companies, too, fostering kindness, balancing profits with consciousness, and creating new wealth measurements. With these systems, JHRI hopes to fulfill its mission of “see a need, fill a need.”
“I couldn’t have won this grant without the help of my teachers at Temescal Canyon High School and my professors at University California, San Diego,” Rupe said. “They helped me hone in my ideas to address issues with AI.”
In May 2022, Rupe was awarded a $1,500 scholarship when he won an essay contest sponsored by the City of Canyon Lake. In December 2022, the city recognized Rupe as its Citizen of the Month.
After college, whether his company expands or not, Rupe said he hopes to keep making inventions that better the world. For more information about Rupe’s endeavors, visit www.jhrinnovators.com.
