startup weekend start 'em up
START 'EM UP: As we've already said, StartupWeekend has spawned a special vertical just for us edtech types, namely Startup Weekend EDU. Check out "Field Reports" below for a few handy-dandy hints if you're signing up to attend for the first time. If you're a more experienced hand, we've got news for you too: Startup Weekend is on a tear. The group aims to host two events a month around the world. Already on the sked: San Francisco, Washington, and London.
That means they're looking for lots of helping hands, including mentors and even folks who want to run the whole show in their hometown. (Hey, Salt Lake! And Denver. Yeah, we're talking to you.) Tempted? Drop us a note, put "Stepping up!" in the subject line and we will connect you with all the right folks. 'Cause we're your friendly neighborhood EdSurge, and that's just how we roll.
