6,000 Entrepreneurs Across 6 Continents: The Impact of Education Entrepreneurs

What happens when nearly 400 Community Leaders and 1000 industry experts from 63 cities around the world volunteer their time to teach people how to use entrepreneurship to improve education? An international movement is birthed and an education industry is rocked like never before!


Thanks to the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Education Entrepreneurs has been able to not only improve and scale its popular Startup Weekend Education event, but also expand its offerings to include Startup Digest Education, Workshops, Summits, online resources and communities, and more. Because of wonderful partnerships with Edsurge, Imagine K12, and 4.0 Schools, Education Entrepreneurs has also been able to ensure participants feel supported as they progress in their entrepreneurial journey and bring their solutions to market.


It’s truly been a groundbreaking 22 months, and Education Entrepreneurs is excited to share its first ever Impact Report. As it always will be, this report is dedicated to the volunteer Community Leaders who’ve contributed a tremendous amount of work, commitment, and passion to develop and sustain education entrepreneurship in their own backyards. Community Leaders are the backbone of the Education Entrepreneurs movement. They have given people from all walks of life the opportunity to innovate and improve one of the most important sectors influencing our future prosperity: Education. It is the Community Leaders we have to thank for the impact we have been able to make, it is the Community Leaders who created welcoming spaces of access and opportunity, and it is the Community Leaders the world can look to as true changemakers in education.
