On January 30, Startup Weekend EDU is coming to São Paulo, Brazil for the first time. Even better news is that it’s coming as part of LearnFest: a festival creating a dialogue about the most pressing challenges and promising opportunities for innovation in learning.
Secretaries, Ministers of Education, NGO leaders for business and founders of technology startups, including Andres Moreno, CEO of Open English will be sharing their expertise as speakers, panelists and coaches of teams participating in Startup Weekend EDU.
Startup Weekend EDU is a global initiative that brings people together over the course of 54 hours to launch startups that have the ability to drastically improve the educational experience for various types of learners. Only two years old, SWEDU has already expanded to 16 cities across the world, and now São Paulo!
LearnFest will be happening in the context of Campus Party, a week long, 24-hours-a-day technology festival where thousands of hackers, developers, gamers and technophiles immerse themselves in a truly unique environment. LearnFest along with Startup Weekend EDU will be bringing educators into the mix.
