EDUKWEST – on the search for better education – was founded in 2009 by education blogger Kirsten Winkler to share the talks she had with startup founders and thought leaders in education with a larger audience instead of keeping them for herself.
In June 2011 EDUKWEST started to grow the staff of writers and contributors.
In July 2012 EDUKWEST partnered with crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to foster educational projects.
Like the knights in the old tales, Kirsten defined her mission as a quest to find the most interesting and promising startups and trends in education. The KW in the name stands of course for Kirsten Winkler.
