Hello,

The company I work for as my day job, LAUNCH, is having our 2nd annual LAUNCH Education & Kids event. It's a two-day conference focused on education, both K12 and higher ed, kid-centric startups and innovation. We'll be showcasing how technology is improving education and changing the way we all learn. 

If you're interested in the topic, a couple ways to get involved:
  1. Builder Scholarship Tickets - We have 100 Builder scholarship tickets available. Apply for them here: http://launchedu.co/builder.html
  2. Apply to present on stage or be in our Demo Pit - If you have a relevant company, consider applying for to present on our stage here: https://app.wizehive.com/appform/login/edu.
One big thing I could use your help with is getting the word out about our event to Educators. We're also offering scholarship tickets to them. Any advice would be great! Applications for those are here: http://launchedu.co/educator.html.

For more info on the event in general, check out our site: http://launchedu.co.

And feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions.

Thanks!
Jason

Jason,

This sounds like a great event. My company, www.batteryPOP.com, features video content for kids 6-11, and we're beginning to incorporate more educational videos onto our platform. Love to learn more!

Best,
Greg

Seriously cool that you work for LAUNCH. While I can't make it for the Edu conference, I was at the LAUNCH festival in SF this year (first time!) and loved it. Especially awesome was the fact that Jason kicked out the fools with the booth babes. Cool to connect with you here on FD! Best, Cynthia
