Event description
Join our panel of Education and Entrepreneurship experts to explore the journey from leading a classroom to leading a company.

About this Event

Moderator Tara Adams (Google and Teach For America) and panelists Andrea Chen (Propeller), Ronicka Briscoe (Legacy Foundation for Girls), Libby Fischer (Whetstone Education), Sam Bowler (Culturalyst) and others will share how their experiences working in the public school system shaped their vision and informed their roles as founders and CEOs of their own businesses and organizations. Stay for a workshop and networking session for participants to explore how your own experiences in the classroom, community, or social sector could help define your entrepreneurial journey and amplify your vision and impact.

This event is perfect for anyone who is...

• A member of the social impact community who wants to elevate your leadership.

• An entrepreneur or aspiring entrepreneur eager to learn from examples of how successful entrepreneurs connect past experiences and insight into their "big idea."

• A member of the education community interested in exploring innovations rooted in education experience but intended to impact the broader society.

Why should you attend?

• Often times, as a first-time entrepreneur, “you don’t know what you don’t know.” This session will help you discover the key steps you’ll need to take in order to use your experience in the classroom or social impact sector to inspire your leadership in your own company or organization.

• You’ll get to learn directly from people in the industry who were former teachers and used their experience to build their own venture.

• Our networking and innovation workshop will help you build your entrepreneurial skills, connect with other entrepreneurs in your area, and perhaps even find the talent you need to bring to your team.
