The First Startup Weekend Education Taipei is coming! 第一個以教育創新為主題的創業週末即將在台北舉辦!

Startup Weekend Education Taipei is a 54-hour event designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs.
Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.
The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.

Startup Weekend Education(創業週末教育版)是一個54小時的活動,匯集了熱情的教育工作者,程式開發人員和設計師,及對於教育有深刻體會與熱情的人,他們發想設計和製作可行的產品,相關服務或學校運行模式,解決一些教育中最緊迫的問題。Startup Weekend Education提供了一個獨特的機會展示如何在一個週末啟動教育創業。

Startup Weekend Education過去已在超過41個國家,112個城市舉辦,超過12000人參加過。畢業的校友也成功地創造了像VidCode, 
Clever, ClassDojo, NoRedInk, Epic Charter School, Qeyno Labs, Night Zookeeper, BrightLoop, PenPal Schools, The Coursebook, Timbuktu, CodeNow, VideoNotes, Three Ring, LessonCast, PiggyBackr這些公司。

第一次的Startup Weekend Education Taipei將在我們的活動夥伴三創育成基金會的場地舉辦(三創11樓)。
我們也將邀請幾位來自臺灣新創競技場(TSS),美商梅隆銀行(BNY Mellon),Women Who Code London以及羅技電子(Logitech)的評審及教育相關業師們擔任導師給大家諮詢意見。 除此之外,本活動最特別的,是我們邀請了來自美國紐約舉辦多場Startup Weekend EDU的引導師Deborah Chang來到台灣指導(英文進行備有翻譯),歡迎你/妳加入本活動一起幫助我們創造一個任何人都可以利用創業精神來改善教育的世界!
