Thibaut Labarre is the Startup Weekend Education's Innovator of the month!

When Thibaut lived in France, he was involved in a movement for students to innovate the way they were taught. Doing that, he discovered that Startup Weekend had an education vertical and was scaling that vertical across the world. He crossed the Atlantic Ocean from France to become a student in Natural Language Processing at the University of Washington. He is now a developer at Amazon's customer service and volunteers as a Startup Weekend Education organizer in Seattle, WA!
