Summary:
Do you run an education technology business - and are looking for investment? Have you successfully raised money - and wish to raise more? Or perhaps you're developing the next Edmodo or ClassDojo - a killer edtech business idea and want to raise your first seed round? 
 
If so - please come down to Edtech Investor Speed-Date - hosted by edtech community Edmix, and charity and social investor, Nesta Impact Investments, on 19th March at Goolge Campus, Shoreditch, from 6.45pm 
 
At the heart of the new 'Edtech Season', run by Emerge Venture Labs at Google Campus - Edmix and Nesta are joining forces to host an evening dedicated to connecting you with investors and institutionals in the edtech sector. 
 
Like traditional speed-dating, you will be given the opportunity to spend 3 minutes with each investor: to present your business in its best light, swap business cards - and when the bell rings, move onto your the next investor, what an opportunity! 
 
We're creating an evening that offers you a fantastic new network of edtech investors - breaking out from the traditional panel-style format, to a more intimate one-to-one session. 
 
--------------------------------------------------------------
 

We're very lucky to welcome Gary Leboff - one of the UK's leading business coaches to work with you throughout the evening on your pitching skills and presentation confidence!
