Some might say that we’re in an education crisis. Due to decreasing budgets for schools, an increase in student drop-out rates and college tuition, and an increased need for adults to learn new skills, education innovation needs to happen now more than ever. For every problem, there’s a plethora of solutions waiting to be discovered.

This November, we encourage you to see these challenges as opportunities for innovation in education. There are many opportunities to improve education and we can’t wait to see what you build during Global Startup Battle! If you’re passionate about changing the world, there’s no greater opportunity than by improving education for others, creating opportunities for them to flourish!
