Hi. We’re 4.0 Schools. We create communities that connect people dedicated to building the future of school. We make tiny early investments in people to test big bold ideas in education.APPLY
Startup Weekend Education (SWEDU) is designed to take you from idea to startup in just 54 hours. You’ll pitch your idea to other attendees, form teams that work for two days building a prototype, and pitch to a panel of judges, all within one weekend. We’ll take you from nascent idea to scrappy prototype fast and cheap.
At Essentials, our 3-day workshops, you’ll to learn how to listen to your users, prototype cheap solutions to test your hypotheses, and unbundle your ideas into more manageable pieces. We’ll take you from scrappy prototype to piloting with users faster and cheaper.
The Tiny Fellowship is 4.0’s newest program designed to take entrepreneurs from piloting with users to securing paying customers. Fellows can be working on their venture part-time and will get access to expert coaching, supportive community, and equity-free capital. We’ll take you from piloting with users to bold, sustainable venture faster and with less compromise.
The Community Catalyst program supports local leaders to build and sustain education entrepreneurship communities in their hometowns. In this yearlong program, you will get the coaching, connections and resources you need to build and sustain an education entrepreneurship community. We’ll take you from dedicated organizer to focused community builder.
Every month, we’ll send out the latest on what the 4.0 Community is launching. Hear stories on what entrepreneurs are learning, struggling with, and building. There might even be a gif or two.
