Who We Are
To ignite the entrepreneurial spirit within today’s educators.
To create a world where innovative technologies redefine education with real-world, scalable solutions.
Miami EdTech® is an education technology non-profit on a mission to ignite the entrepreneurial spirit within today’s educators. Substantiated by a flourishing teacher-tech-centric ecosystem and mutually beneficial cross-sector partnerships, Miami EdTech envisions a world where innovative technologies redefine education with real-world, scalable solutions. Leveraging bespoke programming – including Miami EdTech Accelerator, Social Innovation & Entrepreneurial Leadership ‘S.I.E.L.’ Incubator, and EdXpert powered by Microsoft – Miami EdTech and its partners work to address systemic challenges in education, provide a means for today’s educators to turn their tech-enabled solutions into successful enterprises, and advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in computer science education.
We believe that the most transformational education innovations are born when they are developed in partnership with those most impacted by education— parents, learners, administrators and teachers. We are also Miamians and believe in celebrating our city’s diverse culture and spirit. We attribute Miami being ranked #1 in startup activity in the U.S. to our diversity, strength of character, passion and resourcefulness.
At Miami EdTech, our values and beliefs are built upon a simple idea that unites the two notions above. By establishing a genuine and multifaceted connection between Miami’s vibrant technology sector and today’s educators… we can redefine education for the better.
