Event description

Description

The EdTech industry is emerging as a landscape that is attracting investment with powerful partnerships, with mergers and acquisitions taking place globally.

We would like to invite you to our inaugural EDUCATE Investor Summit & Demo Day at City Hall, supported by The Mayor of London.

Please arrive by 2.00pm for registration, security clearance and a networking drinks reception.

Since our launch in 2017, we have seen over 140 EdTech startups successfully complete the EDUCATE programme, with many going on to gain additional investment, building their networks and partnerships, and vastly enhancing the effectiveness and credibility of their products.

By working together with them, our ambition to put learning first and radically transform the education sector is already being realised. Our work with companies such as Century Tech and Debate Mate has already resulted in significant changes in the lives of both learners and teachers, and as the challenges facing the sector continue to increase, so too does our determination to make sure we’re doing more to prepare future generations for new ways of learning.

The EDUCATE Demo Day 2018 is an event designed to connect ready-to-scale EdTech start-ups with venture capitalists, angel investors and corporations that want to buy, partner or invest in disruptive EdTech solutions. Demos will be rapid-fire 5-minute presentations with 3 minutes of Q&A for entrepreneurs to pitch to investors and forge invaluable business connections.

Who should attend?

This invitation is to thought leaders, publishing executives, leading angel, venture capital, and impact investors looking to discuss new opportunities emerging throughout the learning and education industry.

What's in it for investors?

Investors attending the event will benefit from early access to promising startups and find new investment opportunities from entrepreneurs who have developed, evaluated and improved their products and services with the use of research evidence on the EDUCATE programme. Plus, you'll get to connect with other seasoned investors, startup founders and corporate acquisition teams.

What's in it for corporates?

Meet the innovative teams disrupting the EdTech industry, learn about the breakthrough solutions out there and scout for new partnerships.

The demonstrations will be followed by drinks and networking.
