Entrepreneurship and Innovation in K-12 Education

In this episode we feature a panel discussion moderated by Ted Mitchell (CEO of NewSchools Venture Fund), and including John Morgridge (former CEO and Chairman of Cisco), Lee Shulman (President of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching), Ruth Love (former superintendent of Oakland and Chicago), and Mark Atkinson (founder and CEO of Teachscape).

We are experimenting with a different format this time around bybringing you a cross-disciplinary panel discussion on the topics of entrepreneurship and innovation in K-12 education which we organized.

Also, check out the video for this episode as it has a 2-minute clip from the BUILD showcase recently held in Menlo College. BUILD runs a business plan competition for high school students which I was honored to be invited to judge. If you want to know what’s hot, there’s no better way to hear it from the kids!

Some news: we just launched the iinnovate online community – a social network where you can connect with us and other listeners. Check it out and upload your profile.

Finally, this is the final week to contribute to our survey, so please take a minute and provide us with some valuable feedback.

Thanks for listening!


Matt and I are in Monterey, CA at the annual Red Herring 100 conference, so you can look forward to hearing some great interviews from that event next week, and in the meantime Min Li and Min will be interviewing former HP CEO Carly Fiorina back in Silicon Valley.
