I attended EdSurge
ImmersionNYC this past Friday. The event was designed for EdTech startups that are looking for Advice in the areas of Marketing, K-12 Sales, Scaling Up and Exiting. Attendees had the opportunity to hear from leaders at Various Education organizations ranging from CEOs, Founders, School Superintendents, and Venture Capitalists.
I enjoyed the presentation provided by Brett van Zuiden of
Clever. In his presentation, he reminds us to think of users when designing products versus the way we would use a product.
He reinforced the idea that great product design cannot happen without truly understanding our customers.
There were also great lessons shared by Betsy Corcoran of
EdSurge, Joe Holland of Teachers Pay Teachers and Charles Best of DonorsChoose.Org.
Attendees had the opportunity to take three Clinics led by experts in Sales, Marketing, Scaling up and Exiting. I enjoyed the clinics because they were customized and led by experts.
The clinics that were most relevant to me, were two clinics on Marketing and one on Selling to K-12 school districts. I was able to meet and connect with many great entrepreneurs in the clinics. We received advice that was customized and actionable.
There were also many opportunities to network throughout the event.
EdSurge also announced the upcoming launch of its new service called
The services will apply a fresh approach to market intelligence and learning for investors and executives. EdSurgeIntelligence will allow users to analyze trends from early childhood through higher ed, the workforce and more.
I want to thank the EdSurge Team for having me at Edsurge ImmersionNYC.
It was a great event.
