What is Twin Cities Startup Weekend EDU?

Startup Weekends are 54-hour events where teachers, students, developers, designers, marketers, product managers, and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups! Startup Weekend EDUs are Startup Weekends with a focus on only education. http://edu.startupweekend.org/
What ideas succeed?
Any idea related to education can be pitched. For example, if you want to start a new school, create an edtech app, or provide a Makerspace service, Startup Weekend EDU is for you. Your idea must be at the early stage, with little to no prior development. We encourage all members of the community to share ideas and get feedback.
It is about learning, professional development, and support. We structure the weekend's curriculum to help you gain new knowledge and skills in business, design, and development. You can also build your network, get face time with education and business thought leaders in the Twin Cities, and of course, find people to launch a successful business.
Your ticket covers seven meals, snacks, all the coffee you can drink, and support for our education community.
