The Seattle Public Library will host Startup Weekend EDU Seattle from Nov. 21 to Nov. 23. The public is invited to watch education-based startup teams demonstrate their new product and service ideas from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 23 at The Seattle Public Library, Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., Level 1, Microsoft Auditorium.
At Startup Weekend EDU Seattle, participants will pitch their education-based startup ideas and receive feedback from judges and other participants. Teams will form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote). The teams will spend two days doing user research, customer development, validating their ideas and building prototypes, and then they will pitch their education product or service to judges.
Professional coaches will be on hand to guide teams through the process. Library staff will support the information needs of event participants throughout the weekend.
This event is hosted by the Library. The public is invited to attend Sunday’s presentations for free. Registration for the Sunday presentations is not required. Startup Weekend EDU Seattle is a broader three-day event, however, and registration is required. (end)
