Join us for a fast-paced Prototyping Workshop--our 2nd workshop dealing with "lean startup skills". The workshop teaches skills useful for launching new ventures and is a great preparation for 2016 Twin Cities Startup Weekend Education (Feb. 26-28, 2016) (http://www.up.co/communities/usa/twincities/startup-weekend/7442).
Learn about prototypes or MVPs (“minimal viable products")-- why they are important and how you might go about making one for your edtech startup.
Hear about an edtech entrepreneur's experience with MVPs.
No previous experience required! These hands-on (and FREE!) sessions will address skills relevant to all work that is geared towards innovation.
Grow your network! Attending these workshops will give you the opportunity to meet and interact with other members of the education innovation community.
