Wall Street Journal recently reported that education tech is the hottest trend hitting Silicon Valley. VCs invested $429.1 million in 82 deals last year and the K-12 education software and digital content space is estimated to be a $7.5 billion industry in the US.
This panel will explore the rise of investments in edtech, why investors are interested in this space, the complexities of doing business in edtech, and what types of innovations investors are looking for next.
The panel will conclude with an open Q&A session and guests are invited to stick around for drinks and mingling.
Doors open at Roe in San Francisco at 7pm and the panel begins at 7:30. Beverages and food included!
