Blind Spots In Education: Where Startups Step Up


Education, startups, and innovation

During our Feb 2019 WineDown, we’re brought together key stakeholders in education to discuss how startups contribute to filling in the blind spots, what role they should play, and the complexities that exist.

This event happened in collaboration with Ashoka Austria, Bildünger and their event Zukunftsforum Bildung. Our panelists in this session included:

  • Martin Ruckensteiner, a co-founder of Initiative Schule im Aufbruch a grassroots movement of innovative schools in Austria.
  • Teresa Torzicky, a Teach For Austria program alumni and teacher at a NMS in Vienna. She also runs SEED, an incubator for innovative ideas for fostering equal chances in education.
  • Michael Hagelmüller leads Ashoka Austria‘s multistakeholder work in education (“Bildünger”) and is responsible for finding and selecting new Austrian Ashoka Fellows.
  • Goran Maric is the CEO of Three Coins, a social enterprise specializing in the development and implementation of impactful education formats that increase financial wellbeing.
