As a version of VentureHacks for Education, this handbook is designed to demystify the process of launching an education-focused startup, specifically for K12. This guide is a collection of tightly curated posts from edtech entrepreneurs sharing their direct experience overcoming specific challenges in designing, launching and distributing products for teachers and schools.
If you want to see an article on a particular topic and/or contribute to this resource, just contact me.
Not sure if I can contribute, but I would be happy to help in any way I can. My background includes work with MECC (remember the Oregon Trail) and the Learning Company (online group), Netscape, and 10 years as an ed tech director.
Steve, I actually had Don Rawitsch, co-creator of the Oregon Trail, give a talk to our non-profit incubator space, Catapult Chicago. Here’s a blog post we wrote back in December – http://www.mentormob.com/blog/2011/don-rawitsch-has-a-dirty-secret/
This is precisely the kind of education facility I am working on. I wish all of these very insightful articles were on a single PDF.
