At CB&A, we love fresh ideas. Its inspiring to see passionate people turn concepts into reality, and we jump on every opportunity to foster entrepreneurship in our community.

That’s why we couldn’t be more excited to see Startup Weekend for Education (SWEDU) come to Wisconsin for the first time. Hosted by WeThinkBig, Inc., SWEDU is a workshop that fosters entrepreneurship in the education industry, and it will kick off in Madison at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery Friday, July 22nd through Sunday, July 24.

SWEDU is a weekend-long conference that has travelled across the country, turning ideas into startups in just 54 hours.

Attendees come together to learn new things, bounce ideas off one another and bring some pretty cool concepts to the education industry.

Friday will start with initial idea pitching and group formation. Teams will then refine their ideas and start to develop prototypes. Saturday will feature meetings, group work, and mentoring by expert coaches. The final project presentations will be unveiled Sunday.

If you’re interested in participating in Startup Weekend EDU Madison, sign up via the online registration site. Registration is open until the day before the conference, and anyone with bright ideas about education is welcome–from educator to techie, all are encouraged to attend.
