Welcome to the k12 Lean Labs Coaching Application. You're in the right place if you're a member of the education community that has an idea with the potential to improve educational outcomes for Alabama students.

Our goal is to support early-stage entrepreneurs with the specific support they need at the right time. This form will have questions about you, the problem you're trying to solve, and your idea, if you're already working on one.  With this information, we'll be able to review your application and connect you with the next steps and coaching you need to be successful.

A few tips before we get started:

Plan on 5 or so minutes to complete this application in one sitting (save button technology has not reached Typeform yet) so settle in with a coffee or a Good People IPA.

If you have a co-founder and you're launching a venture together, only one co-founder needs to fill out.   

If at any point you get stuck or have a question, don't hesitate to shoot me an email- mickey@k12LeanLabs.org - and I'll make sure I get in touch.

Example: Parents of kids learning to read need a way to support their child's learning at home; my idea/venture solves this by creating an adaptive digital learning tool that adjusts to a child's reading level.

Hint: We love specificity! If you can, steer away from things like All Teachers, All Parents...etc.
Beyond the madlib is there anything else we should know about the problem you're trying to solve, work you've done so far or why you're excited to tackle this problem?

Who else is solving this problem, how are they solving it and why is their solution inadequate? *

Hint: your answer shouldn't be "no one." We'd love to know other players in the space even if they're not doing exactly the same type of work.
We've gotten to hear about the problem you're solving, and we'd love to finish by understanding more about the brilliant brain behind your ideas. These final questions are about you and how you think

We love learning about the things that get you excited that other people might think is a little nuts. Crazy hobbies? Favorite TV series? Food fetish? Celebrity crush? Music obsession?
