Welcome to the Education Entrepreneur Revolution


Taking the leap into education entrepreneurship can be scary. But what if you were leaping towards a community of entrepreneurs who were ready to mentor, support, and celebrate you? Across the country, education entrepreneurs are reimagining what community and collaboration can look like, working across lines of difference to collectively build hubs of education innovation. Join us to learn more about the VELA Education Fund grant recipients who are building new out-of-system ecosystems where everyone is welcome.
