Launch[ED] Day

On the evening of November 8, LEANLAB Education will celebrate the 5th cohort of entrepreneurs to complete the K12 Fellowship program!

This fall, LEANLAB brought six visionary fellows hailing from across the country to Kansas City to partner with local schools to co-design research pilots and test their innovations.

Celebrate with us over cocktails and hors d’oeurves and take part in an inspiring evening where we’ll share those exciting innovations and our theory of a better way to co-create the future of education through boldness, equity, and human-centered design.
