NYEdTech Startup Showcase 2014

  • March 18, 2014 · 7:00 PM

It's that time of year when we like to showcase some of the amazing EdTech companies within our community. Community members tell-all. Come and hear how much they’re making and who their customers are; they’ll even make introductions for you as well as share their confidential partnership agreements. Not. Let’s see the community demonstrate how they’re solving some of education’s challenges with innovative and scalable technologies.

The presenting companies are:

• Credly

• MakerState

• MarcoPolo

• Mediathread

• Pear Deck

Here's to a great Meetup! In the meantime, connect with fellow NYEdTech'ers online at:

• Facebook - http://ow.ly/h4CZc

• Twitter - @NYEdTech

• Hashtag - #NYEdTech

And of course, we would like to thank our gracious sponsors! 

The company behind Penguin Books, The Financial Times, The Economist, and multiple education businesses now has a develop platform! Build your own applications using Pearson's exciting content. Learn more at http://developer.pearson.com


The Robin Hood Foundation is launching the College Success Prize, a $5 million prize competition to find scalable technology solutions to help more college students stay on track to a timely graduation. Success will be defined by measurable gains in persistence and graduation rates among students in NYC’s community college system who are required to take remedial (developmental) courses.

Visit http://www.robinhood.org/prize to learn more and subscribe to the email list for competition updates.


Knewton personalizes digital courses for students so every student is engaged and no student slips through the cracks.

    I have a very new start-up dealing with kids between 3rd and 7th grades. We 're looking for one or two teachers that are energetic, well spoken, good with that age group and have computer science (coding) background. How do I go about blasting out an email asking to see who from the NYEdTech group would be interested?

    Hi, I recently joined this meetup group and missed this great event. Does anyone have notes, or saved a video of the live stream? I would love to get a summary of what you guys experienced!

    It probably automatically grabs people from the list.

      Correct it does based on the RSVP list.

  • Richa M.

    I really want to attend but am unable to RSVP because it keeps getting full!

    March 18, 2014

    • Tom K.

      Sorry we are oversold by at least 120 at this point.

    Guys, just open RSVP to everyone. 20 people have cancelled, 40 more won't show up. Bump up the entry fee to $10 and let everyone who wants to sign up.

    March 18, 2014

    • Tom K.

      We wish we could open the RSVP to everyone, but then we'd be 120 people over the fire code of 165. We're always looking for bigger space to host the meetup, so if you have suggestions, let us know. Thanks!

  • Paul H.

    Will there be a livestream tonight?

    March 18, 2014

      Hi Paul - yes there will be. Thanks.

    On waiting list, so I hope I see everyone on the 18th. As senior technical training manager launching office, server, windows, and dynamics new learning products at microsoft and a civic engagement specialist, I have lots to learn and share from the group.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
