The Lean Lab envisions a Kansas City that is a world-renowned hub for education innovation. Lean Lab is an early-stage incubator program that launches solutions that better teaching and learning. Lean Lab hosts ongoing community events that offer teachers, students, community leaders, and entrepreneurs development in innovation frameworks specifically geared toward education. Each summer, The Lean Lab hosts a 4.5 week Incubator Fellowship program, which includes empathy work, rapid prototyping, testing, reiterating, and a public Launch Day. The most viable solutions from the Incubator Fellowship are then invited to join the piloting stage of The Lean Lab’s Incubator Fellowship program.
