The Forest School presenting at the University of Pennsylvania!


On Friday, June 28, 2019, Forest School co-founder Tyler Thigpen will present at—and help judge—the Education Entrepreneurship Capstone Celebration of the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education.

UPenn’s program is nation's first master's degree in Education Entrepreneurship is designed at the intersection of education, business, and entrepreneurship. The program provides graduate students with the skills necessary to conceptualize, develop, manage, and scale 21st century education innovations.

The capstone is the culminating project where graduate students identify a new opportunity, either for an existing entity or for the creation of a new venture, and implement the necessary skills they have built in the program to launch their own education program, service, or product.

The Forest School is honored to be represented at this innovative event!
