Use Twitter

Hi Edith,

Thanks for your message. For now you must log in with Twitter or LinkedIn, there is no other way. I would suggest making a Twitter account, it is very easy and you can do it using your yahoo mail. Making a LinkedIn account takes longer.

Hope to hear from you!

you still have over two weeks

Hi Terry,

I think you still have time to fill out an application - for the first round, you just have to have the idea, you don't have to register the company. The application form is only 4 questions (100 words each) and a 30 second video, which you can film with a webcam or phone.

If you have a great idea for an education startup, I think you should go for it. Let me know if you have any more questions.
