IE EdTech Venture Day - IE EdTech Venture Day

IE EdTech Venture Day

With the aim of promoting the EdTech ecosystem in North America, and make the potential for these types of solutions more visible, we invite you to the EdTech Venture Day organized by IE University and EAB. Together these two leading institutions will promote the best start-ups in the sector and showcase the best solutions to the general public.

The EdTech Venture Day is a virtual event aimed at innovative start-ups and SMEs that can provide solutions to create an effective educational environment, and reactivate education for all students and stakeholders in the educational sector. How can technology help education and learning and how can these solutions and companies respond to the situation brought to us by COVID-19? Join us at the EdTech Venture Day to find out!

From the solutions received, 5 finalists will be chosen to present their solution to the general public and to the investment ecosystem. The winning start-up will have the chance to pitch at IE's own stage during South Summit as well as participate in an acceleration program in order to springboard to the next round.
