Calling Entrepreneurs – Education Innovators Showcase Deadline May 15

[ 0 ] May 11, 2011 |

Applications for the Education Innovators Showcase are due May 15!

The Showcase is an opportunity to present your business or product to a room full of pre-qualified investors. Here is what a few of the entrepreneurs who were selected for the 2010 Showcase had to say:

“We were a new company and we saw the Summit as a chance to tell our story to a broader community. We gained a lot of exposure and the event opened doors to new opportunities.” – Clay Whitehead, Co-Founder, Presence Telecare

“[The organizers] take the time to make sure your presentation is tight and tailored for the audience. As an entrepreneur, it’s great to have someone take you under their wing and introduce you both to people and opportunities that count.” – Hilary DeCesare, CEO and Founder, Everloop

“Notehall developed dozens of contacts at last year’s Summit that have led to invaluable partnerships and funding offers. More importantly, being selected for the Showcase gives you credibility within the education industry, which is a difficult industry to make a name for yourself in.” – Sean Conway, Co-Founder and CEO, Notehall.com
Pre-Requisites

To qualify for the Showcase all companies must:

  • Be pre-Series A enterprises
  • Demonstrate market traction
  • Deploy innovative technology-enabled solutions for enhancing student learning or improving institutional performance

New this Year: Entreprenuer Clinic
This year each presenting company will have two 30-minute time blocks to meet with two investors one-on-one during the “Entrepreneur Clinic.” This is an opportunity to get personalized feedback from investors, dive deeper into your business, ask questions, and build relationships. To be considered for the 2011 Education Innovators Showcase and Entrepreneur Clinic, submit your application by May 15.
