The education market is notorious for being a tough playground. The end users of most edtech tools--teachers and students--typically don't have purchasing powers that scale. Schools and districts are bound in red tape and rules involving RFPs and other laborious processes.
What can the recent flood of startups, incubators, funding and acquisitions tell us about the business models that have worked? Is the consumer market a better alternative? And how feasible is this whole "freemium" thing?
EdSurge CEO Betsy Corcoran will tackle these questions with execs from startups and successful companies:
• Anil Hemrajani (CEO, Big Universe)
• Heather Hiles (CEO, Pathbrite)
• Andreas Quandt (Edmodo, formerly Facebook)
• Mahesh Ram (Pearson, formerly Global English)
Thanks to Orrick once again for being generous hosts. See y'alls there!
