Education Industry Opportunities: A Call for Startups

  • CIC Boston 50 Milk Street, Lighthouse West, 20th fl Boston, MA, 02110 United States (map)

Boston is a world leader in education and educational technology, with a thriving ecosystem of schools, universities, and established EdTech companies for startups to work with. But with so many of these institutions being a target of interest for startups looking to sell to, we wanted to provide an opportunity for them to let the startup community know what they're actually looking for.

We're reaching out to...

  • Educational institutions looking for innovative solutions to a particular, ongoing challenge they face.

  • EdTech providers with an API or technology platform they'd like to see more startups integrating / building on.

  • Investors that would like to see new entrants or scaling startups in particular verticals or problem spaces in education.

...and asking them to come and a 2-3 minute pitch to you: members of an existing EdTech startup, entrepreneurs interested in the education space, and educational technologists looking for their next project. 

We're organizing this call for startups after seeing the success of PULSE@MassChallenge's "Reverse Pitches" program in the HealthTech space and Y Combinator's (a nationally-renowned startup accelerator) "Requests for Startups" initiative.

This event is about spurring conversation, making connections across the industry, and solving big problems together. Whether you're looking for testers, customers, partners, or investors, if you're in the education space this is a great opportunity to find them.

This event is part of the Tech & Industry Trends track at Startup Boston 2018.
