Experiencing NY EdTech Week 2017 – EdTech Landscape + Pitch Fest

Educators meet investors meet entrepreneurs.

From TED Talk-style presentations, to performances by Broadway stars, to Shark Tank format pitches, NY EDTECH WEEK consistently facilitates some of the most impactful and memorable ed-tech experiences of the year.

Description from NY EDTECH WEEK website

This is my second year attending the NY EDTECH WEEK. After taking a course with Jonathan Harber (thought leader and serial entrepreneur in EdTech, currently Chairman of StartED), I finally felt I can converse in the language of EdTech venture more adequately. 

One of favorite sessions this year is the talk given by Jeff Rosen regarding the project on teaching Americans about Constitution from a non-partisan perspective. 

I was also very inspired by David Coleman’s talk regarding education equity and the recent initiates taken by College Board. 

One of my most exciting takeaways is the amazing market research done by Navitas Ventures. I have spent a couple of days researching the companies listed in the segments I am interested.
