The Lean Lab
PO BOX 414147
We are building a Kansas City world-renowned for education innovation. The Lean Lab does this by bringing together educators, grassroots leaders, and innovators with early-stage ideas to improve teaching and learning. Through exclusive mentoring, training in Lean Startup & design thinking, and constant testing & refinement, we help launch solutions to impact student achievement.
We're a community that launches transformational edu innovations through our yearly Incubator Fellowship program.
We believe in boldness, human-centered design, and equity. To that end, we work year round to bring parents, students, teachers, school system leaders, funders, community leaders, and entrepreneurs together through community meetings and happy hours in order to surface ideas in need of innovation.
