Startup Weekend Education at the Bay Area is about a week away, and we’re getting geared up to see what they are cooking. To make things even better, Kauffman Foundation was gracious enough to join next weekend as our new sponsor.

Kauffman Labs for Enterprise Creation has always supported the growth of “entrepreneurial innovation in targeted growth industries, including the education sector.” And with their support for the SW Education event, it’s going to be an event you shouldn’t miss.

Because it’s all about giving education a much-deserved focus, the event will highlight some marketers, designers, entrepreneurs, and developers whose ideas can make a deep impression for the state of education today. The winning idea and presentation will take home a $5,000 prize.

Aside from the innovative ideas, Startup Weekend Education is also bringing in some incredible speakers. It’s always been “learning by doing” here at Startup Weekend, but we also want to take advantage of every technological development to change the way we can teach and learn.

We’re reserving seats for the 60 of the most motivated people, and if you think you’re one of them, get a ticket from us before someone gets ahead of you. Startup Weekend Starts on August 27 at Pier 38. We hope to see you there!
