LEANLAB Alumni

Since its inception in 2013, LEANLAB Education has worked with over 20 entrepreneurs and at every step we have sought to change the landscape of education innovation by seeking out the most promising candidates to take part in our K12 Fellowship. We seek out passionate innovators with diverse voices and most importantly, we find founders with great ideas and novel approaches to solve the most endemic problems in education.

To date, the innovations from our alumni have impacted 14,000 students in Kansas City and over 1,000,000 nationally and we are proud to support such inspiring and innovative founders in our shared pursuit to close the achievement gap in K12 education.
