Techstars Startup Weekend Inclusive Education
June 7, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - June 9, 2019 @ 9:00 pm UTC+0$25 – $75
Techstars Startup Weekend Inclusive Education in San Jose will be held on June 7-9 at the Resource Area for Teaching (RAFT) in San Jose. Techstars Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. This is the first Startup Weekend focused on Inclusive Education.
The event: We bring together a diverse group of people passionate about making a positive impact on special education or on people with learning differences. In 54 hours, participants share ideas, form teams, build products and launch education startups. Startup Weekend Inclusive Education begins with open-mic 60-second pitches on Friday night that will result in the formation of small teams around the best, most viable concepts. Teams spend Saturday and Sunday focusing on customer development, talking with educators and students about their needs, validating their ideas and building prototypes with the help of experienced coaches. On Sunday, teams demo their products and receive valuable feedback from a panel of expert judges.
As a participant, we love folks with a diverse skill set. Whether you are a designer, developer, educator, or have a background in business development, we would love to have you participate! If you think there is an area in special education or inclusive education that needs a solution, Startup Weekend is a great place to start actualizing the idea into a demo product.
