Hi Howie--Please share with your contacts, students  and colleagues who are innovating in the education space--
Kauffman Labs for Enterprise Creation* is up and running. We're seeking founders of fast-growth, scalable education enterprises; entrepreneurs ready to startup – passionate, disruptive, driven leaders eager to change the world of education.

We hope you know some. And that you'll help us get the word out to organizations and groups whose networks include visionary, teachable candidates.

The selection process will be fiercely competitive, and with good reason. Founders chosen for this opportunity will receive up to six months of intensive, practical training and personalized support. They'll learn about everything from funding to marketing, brand-building to creating a board of directors. And they'll be compensated for their time.

For the right person, this is the opportunity of a lifetime.

Applicants may be individual entrepreneurs or teams of up to three people. Businesses from concept through young startup are eligible if they offer a product or service to help people learn, directly or indirectly, and could change the face of education.

Here's how you can help: Visit the Kauffman Labs Web site to find out more about this transformative program; forward this email to anyone you think would be interested; tweet about it; talk about it; if you are interested, apply for it – online only: the deadline is Sept. 20, 2010.

Questions? Kauffman Labs will offer two teleconferences for interested applicants to learn more and ask questions: Aug. 9 from noon to 1:30 p.m. ET and Aug. 18 from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET. Call-in details will be announced. Or they can email questions to

Thanks for your help and ongoing support of the Kauffman Foundation. We look forward to hearing from the applicants you point our way.

Vice President, Entrepreneurship
