EDUC 295: Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Education Technology Seminar

How do entrepreneurs, educators, and VC's evaluate and grow successful education and edtech startups? Why do most startups fail, and what are the key ingredients for success? This course will teach you the skills and strategies necessary to effectively evaluate educational services and technology startups much like prospective employees, expert educators, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and venture capital investors do. Each week, we will invite an executive or entrepreneur from a innovative education technology startup (for-profit & non-profit) as a guest speaker, and we'll evaluate all aspects of their invention. A fundamental question we'll explore in this course is how educators and technologists can collaborate to improve equity and access to education by leveraging the massive impact technology solutions can provide. Maximum capacity is 30 students; students will be admitted to the course by the professor. Juniors, Seniors and all graduate students are welcome.
