    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 is an entrepreneur and explorer in the Education Innovation field. After publishing the Edtech 2016 report, in which she and Audrey emphasized the importance of dedicated organizations to foster education innovation in a given city and country, she is now founding LearnSpace, France's first Learning Innovation Cluster, where she wants to accelerate changemaking projects and people. Svenia studied both political science at the Freie Universität Berlin and management at HEC Paris.

    Audrey is a final year Masters student in Innovation and Design Management at HEC Paris & Ecole Polytechnique. 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.
