OCR is proud to sponsor Startup Weekend Education London, a dynamic 54-hour event taking place later this month, that brings together entrepreneurs and invites them to pitch their ideas for the next ‘big thing’ in education.
Startup Weekend is a global initiative, aimed at people who are interested in founding startup businesses. This month’s event focuses on education: attendees are predominantly made up of educators, business developers and designers with a particular interest in educational technology, as well as teachers with ideas to make an impact in the classroom.
The weekend culminates with presentations to an expert panel, giving attendees the chance to gain valuable feedback as well as the opportunity to win a variety of prizes that will help to grow their business.
Simon Lebus, CEO of Cambridge Assessment will sit on the expert judging panel whilst OCR CEO Mark Dawe will deliver a closing speech. Mark will also be available to talk to delegates about OCR’s range of business and enterprise qualifications.
Startup Weekend Education runs from 25 - 27 January at Google Campus, London. For more information, visit www.londonedu.startupweekend.org.
