Back from Kauffman Labs

The EnglEasy team has been pretty busy over the past few months doing research on kids games and also building out our first prototypes.  We just got back from the Kauffman Labs Bootcamp, so we are eagerly awaiting the decision on if we will make it into the Kauffman Labs Incubator program in early 2011.

The bootcamp experience was great and we met a lot of fellow Education Entrepreneurs.  Although I cannot speak much about the program (NDA), I will say that it was an excellent opportunity to meet the people at the Kauffman Foundation and really understand what they are trying to do.  Considering that I have a formal MBA in Entrepreneurship from Babson college, I felt like the Kauffman approach was quite different.  I think it is more around great mentoring and actually doing versus "business planning".  The Kauffman foundation subscribe to a similar philosophy as Startup Weekend, which is why I really liked the experience.

  1. Awesome to hear that you guys are still going strong. Good luck getting in to the incubator. We should have a little happy hour to get the startup weekend teams together.
