Edtech Venture Day São Paulo

EDTECH VENTURE DAY SÃO PAULO

With technology evolving faster than ever, all industries are being affected. With Education is no different: numerous technologies such as mobile education, immersive experience, internet of things, blockchain and machine learning will leverage profound changes in centenary learning practices, reshaping the nature of human teaching and learning.

When combined with new methodologies and new kinds of interactions, new technologies have been creating powerful opportunities to education institutions of all kinds.

With the aim to facilitate that process in Brazil, leading global players such as IE University, FGV EAESP and Google organize the first EdTech Venture Day in São Paulo. The EdTech Venture Day is a cutting-edge, highly competitive Startup program designed to identify and support startups ready to show how they're changing the status quo of education today.

In the upcoming weeks, we will select Startups based on their originality, financial viability, and ability to have a positive impact on major challenges faced by the education sector. After that, we will integrate them with national and international education leaders in a thoughtful day long educational event at Google headquarters in Brazil.
