About Techstars Startup Weekend Education: Startup Weekend Education (SWEDU) is a global network of passionate educators, students, entrepreneurs, developers, and designers working together to solve important problems in our education system. In 54 hours, participants share ideas, form teams, and turn ideas into realities. Startup Weekend EDU begins with open-mic 60-second pitches Friday night that result in the formation of small teams around the best, most viable concepts to improve education. Teams spend Saturday and Sunday focusing on customer development, validating their ideas and building prototypes with the help of experienced coaches. On Sunday, teams demo their education products and receive valuable feedback from a panel of expert judges.

We're excited to bring SWEDU back to SF for the first time in three years. Since our last event in 2015, 1st place winner Literator has provided students with a personalized literacy education in over 3,000 schools in 48 states, and they continue to scale globally. Clever, an idea born from SWEDU Santa Clara, powers learning technology in over half of America's public schools.
