This list was compiled for a presentation I gave at a conference last month focused on building an edtech venture in the United States. It’s meant to be a brief synopsis of some of the key steps you should take, as well as some of the key players you should know about. If you find it helpful, leave a comment saying so. If you think important items are missing, please share them. Hopefully this can be something we all contribute to, in order to create a more comprehensive list of resources and opportunities that edtech entrepreneurs can benefit from.

Note: Edsurge, Imagine K12, and 4.0 Schools are official partners of Education Entrepreneurs

  • Great post and really useful list Mandela. I like the way your outline the process too.

  • I saved this post to see in the future as it seemed very interesting. I can’t see the pictures of this post anymore. Is it a temporal problem or forever one? :/

    • Hey Carlos, the images in the post are available, if you’re having trouble viewing on your device, send an email to help@techstars.com and we can have them sent to you via email.

      • Oh. I can see them today. I guess it was a temporal problem. Thank you! 🙂
