As educators, we want to make a difference in the lives of our students and in the world. We often have ideas and want to initiate changes in our practices, schools, districts, and communities but need help making it happen.
The Education Entrepreneurship Incubator (EEI) was founded by a team of educators who are passionate about doing school differently. We believe that when guided by a core set of principles, and a committed team, school can be a more equitable and moving experience for teachers, students, administrators, and the entire local community.
The EEI is a generative space where motivated educators join forces to ignite, launch, and develop projects and practices with the goal of making school different for students and teachers.
As an incubator participant, you will be encouraged to bring an idea or challenge to the table, no matter the size – something you've been working, have always dreamt about, or are facing in your practice right now. The participant cohort will collaborate to workshop the idea or challenge and help identify actions you can take to bring it to reality.
These principles guide our understanding of what schools could and should be. They anchor our work and are the essential foundation of what incubator participants can expect from our facilitation team.
Our team of education leaders bring a wealth of knowledge founded on public, charter, and independent school experiences. Each team member brings their own set of interests and specialities that are enhanced through their collaborative approach.

At the start of the pandemic, our team quickly pivoted to an all virtual model and have been working with small teams of educators this past year to deliver a complete virtual incubator experience. We will certainly return to in-person incubators when it's safe.
