FUNDING

Meet with the top education VCs to share your ideas and get your questions answered. What do investors listen for? How do you find the investor that's right for you? How can you set yourself up for a successful funding round?


HIRING AND DIVERSITY

The right hiring strategy will set you up for success. Who are your first hires? What kind of hiring process should you have in place? Should you optimize for sales or marketing?

MARKETING

Reaching the education audience can be challenging. You’ll learn what the most successful marketers have learned about cracking into this market. How do you reach them? What is the buying cycle? What works and what is a waste of money?


SELLING TO DISTRICTS

The way educators make purchases is changing. How will your business start and scale the educator's sales process? What does the sales cycle look like? What business models are the most attractive? Who is the right person to contact?


SCALING: MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS

What is your end-game and how can you set yourself up to get there? Learn from companies who understand the process. What did they prioritize? How did they connect with potential buyers? What should you know about the process?
