About The Lean Lab + #KCedu Meetups:
Join #KCedu and the Lean Lab every Third Thursday to network with genius educators, business partners, and other interested folks as you eat and drink, learn and collide!

6:00-6:15: Introductions and announcements
7:00-7:30: Closing comments, continued networking
The format is about active small group networking and relationship building, not passive listening. CHOICE and VOICE! You'll be happy you plugged in to KC's vibrant educator network.
About the Organizers:
- The Lean Lab is a community of educators, entrepreneurs and innovators who are growing, testing, and launching ideas to build the future of Kansas City education. Their fourth iteration of The Incubator Fellowship (an accelerator program that supports entrepreneurs to launch) begins Fall 2017. Stay up to date with all that they do in KC, and sign up for their newsletter here.
- KCedu is a group of educators who know the importance of face to face collisions between educators and city/community friends! KCedu has hosted meetups for over two years, first at Kauffman Foundation and now at EduHub. We're excited to work with The Lean Lab and all the EduHub education organizations to make our meetups impact more educators and ultimately more kids!
We're networking at EDUHUB, in Westport, behind McCoy's and across the street from Kelly's and the Tivoli Theater. EduHub is on the third floor (Suite 301).
FREE Parking in the Manor Square parking garage or on the street.
Tips for finding the parking garage: Turn onto Pennsylvania Ave between Kelly's and McCoy's Public House. Go past EduHub (on your right) and look on your left. As soon as you pass a putt-putt golf green you'll see a driveway to the parking garage!! If you miss it, you can drive around Westport Coffeehouse, turn left again, going through the grocery store lot, and you'll see the Mill Street entrance next to Golds Gym. If you enter from the Gold Gym side, look for doors to Tivoli Theater from the parking garage. You can walk out onto Pennsylvania and the building will be right across the street.
