Blind Spots in Education: Where Startups Step Up


Event Details

Successful startups follow a relatively simple formula–they identify a need and fill it. Udemy saw a need for a better online learning experience and you can now browse through 42,000 courses on their platform. The founder of Slack wanted an easier way for his team to communicate online and created the fastest startup to ever hit a billion dollar valuation.

But what if the need identified lies at the heart of a complex system with many players involved and a lot of bureaucratic red tape? For example, how can startups successfully get involved in supporting better education for students or integrating marginalized groups of our society? What is the role of private companies in taking on these challenges and how can they do it successfully?

During this month’s WineDown, we’re bringing together key stakeholders in education to discuss how startups contribute to filling in the blind spots, what role they should play, and the complexities that exist. Speakers TBA.
