Expanding to new markets is challenging without the right contacts and assistance in localising products. Legal frameworks, customer preferences, pricing structures, and cultures differ by location. This is particularly true for education, with different languages, cultures, curriculums, systems and regulations.
The EdVentures Global Business Acceleration (GBA) Fellowship is an opportunity for growth-stage education ventures from around the world to build their international networks and turbo charge their global expansion plans with facilitated support from:
Yaarit Levy, VP, Business Development and Sales, CoderZ (Israel)
The Edventures GBA Fellowship is the best place for any EdTech company interested in penetrating the Asian market. As the winner of The Greatest Growth Potential Award, CoderZ was introduced to investors, local partners and potential educational clients across GBA.

Kai Liang, Director of Business Development, MEL Science
It has been an amazing journey to be recognised as the winner of the highest education potential award of Edventures GBA 2020 fellowship. I learnt a lot and made many friends. However, what is far more valuable has been the continuous advisory, promotion and strategy support provided by Esperanza team, which has helped to shape the future global strategy of MEL Science, and give us ideas for a couple of important spin-offs already, which I am now putting into action already. I strongly recommend all Eduprenuer to join this program, and be a part of the amazing vibe of enhancing Education delivery on a global basis.
