Education Innovation Mixer
Thursday, September 12, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
Join the Berkeley Startup Cluster, Cooperative Education Project at NextSpace Berkeley for a mixer to discuss changes in higher education. We will bring together educators, students, investors, executives and entrepreneurs to discuss the impact of technological innovations, new collaborations and policy on higher education.
There are recognized obstacles in the pathway from education to employment, including rising costs, low completion rates and graduate unemployment levels. The panel of educators, entrepreneurs and education investors will discuss:
- How innovations in technology, service partnerships and business models are addressing these obstacles
- How collaborations between educators and entrepreneurs are working, what’s not and what's needed next
- How regulations and public policy influence the future of higher education innovation
