Pitch Night: EdTech

 

As we highlighted during last month’s Pitch Night: Startup Survivors, almost every industry has been hugely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The EdTech industry – estimated to be worth $1.7 billion by 2022 – has perhaps seen the most change, with demand for tech solutions to new problems facing education exploding during the last 3 months.

Classrooms and events have been replaced by virtual conferencing technology and streaming services; online learning platforms have bloomed and proliferated; and collaborative technologies such as learning apps have seen widespread uptake.

At Pitch Night: EdTech, we’ll be focusing on those founders and startups who are offering tech solutions in the education industry. In particular, we want to hear from startups and founders who have reacted and engaged with the new demands of students, parents, educators and other customers as the pandemic has changed how we think about education.

The Pitch Night

Startups at all stages of growth are welcome to enter Pitch Night: EdTech, as long as their business solves a problem in the education industry. On the night, four founders will pitch their startups via Zoom to a virtual room of industry professionals, fellow founders and an expert panel of judges to win The Startup Vic Prize Package.
