About

We are a Minnesota non-profit organization which supports entrepreneurship and innovation in the education and training sectors. Building on our region’s rich legacy of innovation in education, we focus on supporting education entrepreneurs by providing regular networking, collaboration and learning opportunities, as well as helping strengthen our local educational entrepreneurial ecosystem and connecting it with our broader business, investment and academic communities.

EdNorth Factsheet:

 We help make connections to mentors, funding,

learning, and jobs in Education and Training.

 

Our Vision

Our vision is that the Twin Cities region will become a national leader in providing innovative solutions for the education and training sectors. We will do this by regularly bringing together educators, academics, entrepreneurs, investors, and education industry enthusiasts in order to create a collaborative, connected and vibrant ecosystem where people across education and training disciplines can work together to discuss challenges, explore innovative strategies and implement creative and effective solutions for the global opportunities in education and training.

North Star compass emphasizes our belief that innovation happens WITH communities, not to communities. We're also inspired by "True North".

Blue"North" signals our affinity for the upper Midwest: And our resilience through the cold.

Orange color recalls our history. Plus, it's Gatorade orange, reminding us to refresh ourselves as we work hard and play smart.
