Our Events 

To make meaningful and sustainable change in the K–12 industry, we need novel ideas, investors to help bring the ideas to life, and school leaders to implement the ideas in classrooms. When an idea lacks the support of any one of these groups, it is destined to fail in the K–12 space.

Yet these three groups rarely have an opportunity to collaborate and fuel educational innovation together, exchanging keen insight from their respective domains that may boost the overall success of the idea.

IEI National Summits convene K–12 entrepreneurs, the investors who provide the capital behind innovation in our industry, and the educators charged with leading our nation's school districts.

We connect K–12 superintendents, mission-driven organizations, and innovative thought leaders to develop effective, sustainable solutions to the real-world, right-now issues facing public education.
