About Startup Weekend EDU and Education Entrepreneurs
The Houston Startup Weekend team with the most votes will also have the opportunity to represent Houston and compete with teams from other cities around the world in Global Startup Battle 2014. Startup Weekend Edu is a program created by Education Entrepreneurs, which is a global and diverse community, specifically focused on leveraging entrepreneurship to improve education outcomes. Recognizing that education entrepreneurs face unique problems that require unique solutions, we've created a suite of programs that help people launch and scale education ventures, no matter where they are in their entrepreneurial journey. Only three years old, the Education Entrepreneurs community has already expanded to more than 70 cities spanning 6 continents, creating an unprecedented opportunity for anyone anywhere to play a role in shaping the future of education.
Centering on Startup Weekend Education, a 54-hour experiential learning event, education entrepreneurs can now take advantage of education-specific reading lists, bootcamps, and a global network of Community Leaders who are eager to help. Education Entrepreneurs is part of UP Global, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that supports global entrepreneurship.
