Manifest your vision.
Introducing the Personal Agency Incubator.
A program created for educators looking to make change.
As educators, we've all dreamt of projects, events, or programs that could change the way we operate. Whether it's implementing new practices in the classroom, a school, a district, or starting a micro-school or Edtech venture, or just exploring new concepts like web3. Join a community of education professionals in discovering an actionable path toward the realization of your vision.
Incubator begins March, 2022.
Applications accepted on a rolling basis until February 1, 2022.
Limited seats available.
k20 Personal Agency Incubator
Use entrepreneurial thinking and design thinking frameworks to guide you in the pursuit of your plan & the realization of your aspiration.
Crystalize your Vision through Self-Discovery
We start the incubator with self-identity work. Understanding who you are & why your pursuit matters to you. You'll crystalize your vision for your project through your "why".
Make an Actionable Plan
The incubator will step you through activities to pursue your vision & the possibilities beyond your vision. Actionable plans will be created.
Learn with a powerful community
We will walk through the manifestation process together as a cohort of educators across the globe.
Participate in an expertly crafted program to take actionable steps toward realizing your vision.
Weekly virtual meetings providing frameworks & guidance on actions you can take week-to-week
It is one thing to have an idea, and yet another to make that idea a reality. This incubator will take you on a journey of self-discovery to identify your "why", crystalize your "what" & empower you to develop a sound plan toward your "how". You will deliberately incubate your idea through conversations with others and exploration of new possibilities. It will then guide you toward finding the friends, allies, & resources you need to help you realize your vision.
