Edutech Showcase and Forum enlightens Minnesota


A sizable group of individuals concerned with knowledge, learning and technology convened at the University of Minnesota McNamara Alumni Center yesterday for the second annual Edutech 2012 Showcase and Forum.
Jam-packed with relevant content for teachers, entrepreneurs, investors and various champions of education from across Minnesota, the mission was to “Foster the awareness, growth, and continuing success of early-stage EduTech companies, expanding the connection between EduTech market participants, and strengthening our leadership in education innovation across the globe.”

While there could have been a stronger emphasis on the early stage companies themselves (deeper dive, panel session, earlier vs. later in the day, etc.), the program is the only one of its kind that offers a platform for Minnesota entrepreneurs operating exclusively the edutech domain.
