Blackboard Ventures: Why Learning is Being Disrupted | | Tuesday, 09. July 2019

Education has remained more or less the same for hundreds of years. There was a blackboard, a teacher and students on desks in a classroom. With EdTech, a student can practice English and Maths online, upload homework through a portal and use 3D immersion to learn chemistry. EdTech has evolved to incorporate gamification, virtual reality classrooms and even virtual internships which prepare you for the workforce with skills and knowledge beyond what you get in a classroom.
Not only are EdTech entrepreneurs revolutionising the way we learn, they are impacting and empowering society on a wider scale with access to education and access to the workforce.
Join Textbook Ventures and a panel of passionate entrepreneurs in the EdTech space on 9 July to learn about:

The personal and professional journeys of entrepreneurs in EdTech
The challenges and opportunities facing the EdTech industry
How entrepreneurs are disrupting the way we learn and teach
How entrepreneurs are removing barriers of entry to education the workforce
Available opportunities for you to kickstart YOUR career in the start-up space and EdTech

Attendees will also have the opportunity to submit questions to the panellists for our moderated Q&A Session. For students and budding entrepreneurs, the event will also include a networking session for an opportunity to connect with the wider start-up community.
Free food and drinks will be provided on the night.
