The most effective way to increase student learning is to improve teaching. We are committed to developing teachers through every stage of their career, empowering them as professionals for the benefit of our students.
Modeled after CO.LAB’s 48HR Launch, The Teacherpreneur Incubator offers teachers support, time and space to incubate big ideas and execute them in the best interests of their students and their profession. The Incubator brings together teachers, business people, and community members to launch transformative ideas.
A partnership between PEF and HCDE, Teacherpreneur brings together educators, entrepreneurs, experts and community members to make these ideas a reality, growing them into scalable, sustainable programs and businesses.
After a competitive selection process, a summer of planning and an intense 48 hours of pitch preparation, Teacherpreneurs compete for the funding to make those ideas a reality at the Pitch Night in front of the community and judges.
We have some exciting changes to the program for its fifth year! Selected Teacherpreneurs will be part of two rounds of programming designed to take ideas and put them into action.
The Teacherpreneur Incubator is open to all Hamilton County classroom educators, counselors, media specialists and coaches, and applications for this year will close on August 3, 2018. We’re not looking for polished business plans or grant applications – we’re looking for good ideas and passionate educators (or teams of educators) who want to make those ideas real. Join us for summer meetups for support on your idea or proposal!
