1 million cups
A huge thanks to 1 million cups for inviting us to present today! We spoke to a room full of local entrepreneurs about the blank schools methodology, business model and future plans. There was a fantastic group of people present who were very supportive and interested in helping spread the blank schools methodology. There were even several people in the room who were interested in starting their own schools.
Blank Schools catalyzes the design and formation of new school models through a radically different approach – condensed time-frames, interdisciplinary teams, and the use of principles from human centered design thinking, lean startup and empowered participatory governance methodologies. This process was prototyped in July of 2014 and led to the design and opening of Ampersand School in Longwood using a team of 30 interdisciplinary experts and a timeline of 40 days. If you’ve been thinking about launching your own school – check out blank schools!
1 million cups meets every Wednesday at 9am. Hope to see you there soon.
