Is Your School Ready to Date a Startup?

***NEW RSVP PROCESS--We will be using Eventbrite to handle RSVPs for this event. Please register here, as this will be our master list for tracking attendees.***

How do you turn a spring fling into a serious relationship? <3

How can startups and schools work with one another to build better relationships and shape product development? We’ll hear from:

  • Companies that go above and beyond (their office) and into classrooms. Those that go further than just observing and talking and maybe even teach a class themselves
  • Educators who open the classroom to coders and impact how they can best work with schools

And not all relationships are meant to work out. Startups will pivot--or fold. Schools may realize it’s not worth the time or money--or simply choose someone else. What mutual understandings and ground rules ought to be in place to avoid a messy breakup?

Food and beverages will be generously provided by Orrick.


  • Jon Deane (Chief Information Officer, Summit Public Schools)
  • Dan Carroll (Co-founder and COO, Clever)
  • Kalen Gallagher (ClassDojo; Trustee, Campbell Union High School District)
  • Angela Estrella (Library Media Teacher, Lynbrook High School)


For those taking BART, the venue is located between the Embarcadero and Montgomery stops. Those driving can park in the Orrick garage; the entrance is located on First St, south of Howard St. There is a flat charge of $6 when entering after 6pm.

Interested? Please register on the Eventbrite page.

    Hey, I'm stuck at work and not going to be able to make it tonight. Just wanted to let somebody know to take my name off the list. There doesn't seem to be a way to do it through the eventbrite page.
