Do you have an idea to improve education? Want to help educators w/ theirs? You need to come to Startup Weekend Education SouthBay- 4/27-29!
The event: We bring together a diverse group of educators, students, parents, designers, developers, and business people passionate about making a positive impact on education. In 54 hours, participants share ideas, form teams, design products and launch education startups. Startup Weekend Education begins with open-mic 60-second pitches on Friday night that result in the formation of small teams around the best, most viable education concepts.
Teams spend Saturday and Sunday focusing on user research, customer development, validating their ideas and building prototypes with the help of experienced coaches from the education market. On Sunday, teams demo their education products and receive valuable feedback from a panel of expert judges.
