Description

Event Overview

Growing education organisations is hard. At Edspace, we're here to make it easier. Whether it's by networking with our extensive education community, sharpening your and your team's skills through our tailored webinars and academy days or by making the most of our subsidised desk offers in a prime East London location, our mission is to help education organisations like yours to thrive.

This Spring we're thrilled to be hosting a suite of brilliant events, including our flagship monthly networking event, the Edspace Growth Breakfast series. Held at Edspace on the first Thursday of every month, the Growth Breakfasts feature a talk by a leading voice in education + excellent networking with other education innovators + our famous (free!) breakfast spread.

Past speakers include Daisy Christodoulou (No More Marking), Dominic Norrish (United Learning Trust), Jodie Lopez (lovEdtech), Mike Southon (Beermat Entrepreneur) and Graham Hales (Interbrand) – every month, we bring you the people who understand what it takes to build a successful enterprise in education.


Growth Breakfasts coming up this Spring:

Next event: Thursday 2 May – Lauren Thorpe, Head of Data and Systems Strategy at Ark

Lauren Thorpe, Head of Data & Systems Strategy at Ark MAT, sees first hand every day the mistakes companies in trying to sell to schools. ARK has 38 schools, and edtech companies approach them every day.

Lauren will share some of the learnings of what she sees edtech companies do well (and do badly, sometimes very badly). Her talk will effectively offer a list of how to prepare for a sales meeting with a school and a MAT. This is invaluable learning even for experienced founders and sales teams as to how companies can get it badly wrong without even realising it.

Date: Thursday, 2 May 2019
Arrive: 9:00am - 9:15am
Breakfast and talk: 9:30am - 10:00am, followed by Q&A
Location: Edspace, Block D, New City College Hackney, Falkirk Street, Hoxton, London, N1 6HQ


Coming soon: Thursday 6 June - Chris Haley, Partner - Entrepreneur and Operations Specialist at 01 Ventures

Fundraising is not easy and it’s time consuming - many founders fail to raise capital, some get meetings but run in circles never getting a lead investor. Even if successful, founders can, if they are not careful, end up in a perpetual fundraising cycle for years. Chris' session will give you valuable insights into how to effectively fundraise from a VC.

Chris is a Co-Founder and Partner at 01 Ventures, a deep tech seed VC. Chris has been in the startup world for several years, has been a mentor for the Prince's Trust, an investor in residence at Startup Bootcamp and is also a STEM ambassador.

Date: Thursday, 6 June 2019
Arrive: 9:00am - 9:15am
Breakfast and talk: 9:30am - 10:00am, followed by Q&A
Location: Edspace, Block D, New City College Hackney, Falkirk Street, Hoxton, London, N1 6HQ
