We partnered with Teach For America – Miami Dade to create the S.I.E.L (Social Innovation and Entrepreneurial Leadership) Incubator to reach more classrooms and share innovative EdTech solutions to reach more students who face educational inequity.
Our incubator focuses on combining the best practices of launching/scaling a startup through the critical lens of educational principles and frameworks.
Our first cohort launched on July 10th, 2018 with ten TFA – Miami Dade educators looking to develop and deploy effective solutions for issues in education. These solutions range from resources to address gender-based (trans-gendered) discrimination, to providing healthy and nutritious meal options for students who attend under served schools.
The program includes an online curriculum and virtual experience covering the following areas:
- Design Thinking – design a simple solution to complex problems using research backed techniques.
- User Testing – learn directly from your intended users and customers.
- Scaling Lean – grow and expand your impact with little to no capital.
- Pitch Coaching – develop a compelling business pitch to present to stakeholders and/or investors.
