    Beyond the Hype : Mapping Edtech Clusters and Creating Open-Source Resources for a Refined Understanding of the Global Ecosystem

     

    What are the key components of an ecosystem that an edtech startup needs to thrive?

    Sharing Edtech Best Practices and Success Stories in Order to Scale Innovation

    We want to make sense of the hyped “Edtech” acronym and bring stakeholders who have a different understanding of Edtech together by raising awareness of the different challenges of a fundamental sector. We wish to amplify the voice of a large community of education innovators and share their philosophy, ideas, findings, innovations, achievements with a broader audience.

  • The Team

    It All Starts with A Franco-German Enthusiastic Pair in Jouy-en-Josas

    We ascribe to the entrepreneurial spirit and support innovative pursuits : our goal is to continuously refine our frame of reference to comprehensively understand markets and customer needs, aid the innovation and growth of amazing products. We are passionate about collaboration that includes private, public and nonprofit partners and the relationship between civic innovation and economic development and admire programs and projects that focus on the edtech nexus at all types of stakeholders (higher education institutions, edtech startups, corporations, nonprofit organizations and public sector agencies)

    Svenia

    Svenia is a Franco-German graduate who studied political science in Berlin and Management at HEC Paris. She is passionate about the future of education and is now using her experience with the Edtech World Tour to be an Education Innovation consultant for various organisations in France and beyond.

    Svenia is a hackathon lover, convinced that the biggest innovations of our century will come from the bottom. She's very curious about the future of humanity and has a special interest for Artificial Intelligence and Nanotechnologies.

She is passionate about cultural biases in our education systems, the intersection of public policy and entrepreneurship, practical ethics and is a literature buff at heart. She recently joined Liberté Living Lab, a business incubator located in Paris, bringing together change drivers with varying profiles (from start-ups, social entrepreneurs, to digital artists and large corporations) to pool their expertise and knowledge to establish conditions that inspire community innovation open to society as a whole.
