The early-stage education incubator 4.0 Schools is responsible for making New Orleans the first truly entrepreneurial education ecosystem. The nonprofit offers a platform for teachers, technologists and entrepreneurs to create bold solutions and ventures– often tech-related– for the real problems in schools.
4.0 Schools is host of the annual Education Pitch, now an essential part of New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (NOEW), that brings together a set of passionate entrepreneurs who are building the future of school, one piece at a time.
Education Pitch, held in partnership with NBCUniversal’s Open Possibilities program, will take place on Monday, March 23rd at 6:00 PM at The Chicory in New Orleans.
Eight teams will present in front of a panel of judges including: Tanya Jones, Anchor Collaborative Manager, Office of the Mayor; Ashley Aleman, K-12 Industry Liaison, GNO, Inc.; Allen Square, Chief Technology Officer, PosiGen; and Mike Eckert, Chairman, NO/LA Angel Network.
