Startup Weekend Education - Chicago
$51 to $250
Startup Weekend Education's mission is about connecting people with a shared passion for education innovation and giving them skills they need to validate and build their own solutions.
In 54 hours, participants share ideas, form teams, build products and launch education startups. Startup Weekend Education begins Friday with 60-second pitches and team formation around the most impactful, viable concepts. Teams spend Saturday and Sunday focusing on idea validation and prototype creation with the help of experienced coaches. On Sunday, teams demo their solutions and receive valuable feedback from a panel of expert judges.
This is a chance to turn talk into action by teaming up with developers, designers, entrepreneurs, parents, students and other educators to create new tools, models and learning environments. Prizes include a trip to the ASU/GSV conference and work space at 1871.
