Event Overview

Whether you are…

an entrepreneur investing your time,

            an investor deploying your capital,

                        or a practitioner investing in your life’s work…

This is the one event that explores the intersection of those efforts and the realities of “investing” in education.

Education Growth Advisors and Education Growth Partners are proud to present the EdGrowth Summit. This year’s event has a new name and a new time on the calendar, yet it remains the one event that convenes a diverse set of entrepreneurs, investors and institutional leaders in an intimate, engaging setting to explore the dynamics of early-stage investing in the education sector.

Drawing on the concept of a “Reality Check” as our thematic platform, this year’s Summit will dive into the complexities of investing in an industry in which market and mission converge and examine the intricate mix of risk and opportunity across the global education marketplace. In addition, attendees will gain perspective on factors currently driving companies’ traction, institutions’ decision-making, and investors’ expectations to enhance their ability to navigate their markets and broader sector dynamics.

At the Summit, attendees will have the unique opportunity to explore the issues through:

  • Engaging in frank panels and discussions that provide an interdisciplinary lens on the sector; no more K-12, post-secondary or international education silos – it’s time to apply lessons and insights across the sector;
  • Sitting ringside as industry heavyweights go toe-to-toe in dynamic debates on provocative education topics;
  • Hearing and evaluating Series A solutions worthy of funding;
  • Proprietary research shared first with Summit attendees regarding how entrepreneurs, practitioners and investors view opportunities within the sector;
  • Conversations with the select group of entrepreneurs, executives, investors and practitioners invited to attend
