Edupreneurs (formerly Pop-Up Prep.) is a social incubator project dedicated to building community at the intersection of Education + Entrepreneurship.
Our focus is on fellow educational entrepreneurs, Eddies for short. Edupreneurs connects community members through hosting (or co-collaborating on) unique social, professional, and educational experiences. Whether our private online community, blog spotlight, or event we aim to bring these local movers ‘n’ shakers together in new and creative ways. Simply put through our various projects we equip our community with the resources they need to thrive personally and professionally. We aim to educate, entertain, + inspire. Annnnd if in the process we can provide introductions for future collabs and new-found colleagues, perfect! Together let’s expand the reach of edupreneurs while simultaneously building community. Stay in the loop by joining our mailing list below, peruse our social media channels, and don’t forget to sign-up with our Meet-Up group. Eddie. Set. Go. It’ll be even better with you there!
Because the exciting journey of being an educational entrepreneur doesn’t have to feel like “an army of one,” especially in those first five years on your grind. We get it, as much as what you do lights you up, it is also challenging and sometimes isolating. Our homebase is Los Angeles, and studies show LA has the most freelance workers in the US with nearly a fifth of households reporting self-employment income in 2012. Many of these freelancers and start-ups find themselves at the intersection of education + entrepreneurship. A unique path to walk and where we like to hang out most. We are a truly diverse bunch (take a look), but regardless of what avenue of edupreneurship you’re on, we share a common goal: to make a positive impact in our world. Edupreneurs strives to create a space where we can come together to have honest conversations, learn from one another, share resources, and outreach meaningfully. In other words, #EdUp and be each others community.
