Welcome to the (first ever) Oakland Startup Weekend EDU!
Our event is similar to the traditional Startup Weekend Event, except it includes a fourth crucial participant category: educator. Who better to speak about problems and solutions in education than educators and school leaders?
This isn’t a mere hackathon. Hackathons produce products or features; Startup Weekend EDUs produce new ventures. These could take the form of a new startup, or an internal venture incubated by a school. By bringing together education rockstars, marketing maestros, design gurus, relentless hackers, and serial entrepreneurs, ventures launched at a Startup Weekend get a team completely aligned around their mission, working with a harmony that’s hard to find anywhere else.
