Runway Incubator – 1355 Market Street #488
San Francisco, CA

Cooley is pleased to host a select group of industry leaders and investors for a unique conference on investment opportunities in global education followed by an edtech pitch program. The conference will explore current trends and issues affecting the education vertical, strategic investment ideas and opportunities. We will be featuring leaders in the broad education space to explore and present on emerging opportunities for domestic and international investment.

After the conference program, there will be an opportunity for networking and then a short panel on early-stage edtech investments. Edtech angel and venture stage companies will present three-minute rapid-fire pitches and answer questions from our edtech investor panel. After the pitch portion of the event, investors will have an opportunity to meet the companies and see demos of their products.
