Step 1

The first stop for any entrepreneurial educator should be an EdTech MeetupHackathon, StartUp Weekend or EdCamp to further develop your idea and build a team to develop the product. 

Step 2

Before you start creating your product you'll want to become knowledgeable about what's happening in the EdTech community and check out your competition. 

Step 3

Next, you'll need to do your research so that can demonstrate how your innovation will improve teaching and learning at scale. Here are some sources that you can provide with the data to understand the potential impact of your idea.

Canadian Data 

Ontario Data

American Data

International Data

Step 4

Develop your product / Refine your product.

Step 5

To ensure that your innovation works, you'll need to find some schools to pilot your innovation.

Step 6 

Pitch your innovation at an EdTech event to showcase your product and secure  support so that your idea can grow into a self-sustaining company. 
* Be prepared to repeat steps 2 through 6 
as your company transitions from a start-up to a mature enterprise.
