Venture Day Tel Aviv
About Venture Day Tel Aviv
Education is evolving quickly, and how top institutions and alternative training providers use technology to help students develop their skillset is advancing even more so. Today leading universities are seeing added challenges from non-degree granting institutions, and in turn, are generating their own offerings to compete with private sector players who are in some cases proving more agile at delivering training in areas such as data science. And here lies the opportunity for smart entrepreneurs able to help both types of organizations become more effective at delivering the outcomes students are seeking, via innovative educational technology (EdTech) solutions.
With the aim of facilitating that process of bringing more EdTech solutions to the fore, IE Business School is organizing the first EdTech Venture Day in Tel Aviv. The purpose of the event is to offer a cutting-edge, highly competitive program designed to support the identification and development of start-ups that are using new technologies to help universities, private sector training providers, and civil society in general tackle some of the most pressing challenges of our age.
In the coming 3 months, we will select 5 start-ups based on their originality, financial viability, and ability to have a positive impact on the major challenges universities and training providers face, to compete at our event in Tel Aviv and potentially for a spot in an upcoming intake of the IE Rockets Program in Madrid.
Finalists will have the opportunity to pitch their projects to a selected audience in Tel Aviv composed of investors, officials, business pioneers, and representatives of universities and training providers. They will also have the chance to meet the team responsible for selecting projects for the IE Rockets program at IE.
Part accelerator, part angel investor, part very committed educational client – IE Rockets is designed to rapidly build your capabilities and brand in the higher education sector, helping you penetrate the market quicker and making it easier for you to raise capital.
