One week before the big event, Educelerate-LA held a meetup to preview our Startup Weekend. (http://www.meetup.com/Educelerate-LA/events/156063732/)
Hosted by Todd Maurer at Angelika Putintseva’s WorldSpeak School in Westwood, a packed house of edupreneurs discussed their past experiences with Startup Weekends and EDU ventures. The excitement for the first LA SWEDU was palpable as nearly the entire room signed up to either participate or coach.
In case you are interested, join the local meetup for future great events. Also, look out for the founder of Educelerate, Christopher Nyren, this weekend as he is flying in from Chicago to help organize our SWEDU.
Educelerate is a national education industry network with an initial focus on Chicago and the Midwest and new offshoots in Los Angeles and Phoenix. We are starting our efforts through this monthly MeetUp to grow and develop an ecosystem of entrepreneurs, investors and partners.
