Shaping the Future of Education

One Startup at a Time

Building Startups to Improve Education

Startup Weekend Education (SWEDU) was founded on the belief that entrepreneurship is the most powerful force to positively impact education outcomes. We are a global initiative that brings people together over the course of 54 hours to launch startups that have the ability to drastically improve the educational experience for various types of learners. Only two years old, SWEDU has already expanded to 16 cities across the world, and we are excited to give everyone an unprecedented opportunity to play a role in creating the future of education.
