Event Details

Education as we know it, has been around for centuries. Little has changed from the model we have all experienced: teachers and professors stand in front of students, who are expected to absorb all the subjects in a passive and often boring environment. And the results are often not great.

Many entrepreneurs realize that this is the next frontier to disrupt and we are hearing about startups such as Coursera, Udemy, the Khan Academy, Udacity betting on the fact that students are ready to learn in a different climate and in different ways that suit them and their unique learning styles.

Join us for an evening with widely successful and disruptive online/offline education companies. You will also meet an international audience formed by the members of BayBrazil and our partner organizations GABA, IEFF, JHTC, SiliconFrench, SiliconVikings & TEC.

Complimentary appetizers, wine and soft drinks will be served.

Agenda:

5:30-6:30 Registration & Networking

6:30-7:30 Panel of successful EdTech companies, investors and experts

7:30-8:30 Startup pitches

  • Eren Bali (Udemy, CEO & Co-Founder)
  • Keith Devlin (Executive Director, H-STAR Institute, Stanford University)
