The Essentials Fellowship supports people from across the USA with ideas for schools, educational programs and services, and edtech tools. The Essentials Fellowship will take you from having an idea to running a short, 1-day experience for the families and students you want to serve to give feedback on the solution you’ve created. We like to call these pop-ups, which are similar to pop up restaurants or retail shops in their beginning stages.
The Essentials Fellowship begins with a 3 day program we call Camp in New Orleans, where you’ll dig deeper into your understanding of what you are building, who it is for, and what problem you are solving alongside 15 other teams. You will also start to identify what needs to be true in order for your venture to succeed and learn how to best test those pieces when you return home. We get you feedback on the spot by assembling students, teachers, parents, and community members. By the end of the weekend, you’ll have a plan for your first pop up of your idea that you can run in your own community.
Once you get home, the real work begins. You’ll continue to receive funding and virtual coaching on your pop up and have virtual meetups with your cohort.
Essentials is free to attend if you’re accepted and travel scholarships for Camp are available to founders who demonstrate need.
