In this month’s WineDown, we’ll bring together a group of founders to showcase their startups and their approaches to innovation in the education sector as well as an exclusive speaker.
Technology is revolutionizing the way we consume, access, facilitate, and disseminate education. Education Technology (EdTech or EduTech) is an industry that is still in its infancy but has the potential to deliver an entirely new form of learning architecture.
