What could be better than Startup Weekend Education, fall in Boulder, and entrepreneurs spending a weekend working away to create innovative education companies! As you can probably tell, I can’t wait to make it back to Boulder this coming weekend to see old friends, hangout on the beautiful CU Boulder grounds, and to work with entrepreneurs interested in the education space. Just a little over 1.5 years ago I participated in a regular Startup Weekend Boulder at the TechStars Office where I formed a team to aggregate and organize educational video content. I am now excited to get back to Boulder where all of the teams will be focusing on educational concepts.
The event takes place this Friday to Sunday at the Microsoft Bing Office in Downtown Boulder. Great mentors will be on hand including Congressman Jared Polis, former tech entrepreneur and school founder who ran a number of charter schools in his past and is extremely knowledgeable about the education sector.
