I'm Jon Izak, CEO of SpecialNeedsWare, and will be bringing this Meetup Back to Life! In doing so, we are losing the old name of education startup meetup and are now the new and improved "Education Innovators and Innovative Educators Meetup!" The reason for the name change is simple. As an entrepreneur, I've found the most useful aspect of these type of meetups is connecting with educators to gain feedback and discussing the real issues in education!

Going forward, that will be my focus for this meetup... Connecting Education Innovators with Innovative Educators. We will host meetups at SMART Technology's (our great sponsor) beautifully designed NYC showroom. SpecialNeedsWare will be sponsoring the food and drinks and may host some meetups at our HQ as well.

If there are those in the group who would like to participate in organizing with a focus on the more typical startup-y activities (Venture capital, selling to schools 101, etc.) be sure to reach out as this is not my primary focus. I look forward to hosting great events that are informative for both educators and education innovators so we can improve learning and student outcomes!

I look forward to meeting you all!
