COVID-19 has created sea change to how we learn, be it in the school or the business setting. The Edventures Global Business Acceleration Summit gathers experts, innovators, investors, educators, talent development professionals and other people looking for solutions and opportunities in the education technology space. Participants will learn from experts the ed tech developments and trends in the education and business sectors. Ed tech startups will get advice on how they can develop and scale up their businesses, and what investors are looking for.
The Summit is the highlight of the Edventures Global Business Acceleration (GBA) Fellowship and a featured event of the Cyberport Venture Capital Forum. The 2021 Edventures GBA Fellows will present their solutions from early childhood education to lifelong learning.
Experts from edtech hotbeds around the world will share their insights on how we can:
- Turn technology from a makeshift tool to an enabler of effective learning
- Address the undercapitalized edtech sector with new models of funding
- Ensure our workforce stay relevant
- Foster cross-sector and cross-border partnerships to scale impact
