From Educator to Entrepreneur: Using entrepreneurial skills to impact learning
A Special Night for Educators*

Have you ever thought about getting involved in an education-focused startup but did not know where to begin? Would you love a chance to solve the biggest issues you face in your classroom?

Come be inspired by folks just like you- who made the transition from working for others to being a founder of their own education startup!  Our panel will share their pathway from being an educator to solving challenges in education within their startup. Following the panel, we'll do some hands-on activities to start thinking like an entrepreneur & how to turn your ideas into action.
