EdTech Trade Mission USA 2020

EdTech Trade Mission USA 2020

In partnership with NSW Treasury: Study NSW, Global Victoria, and Austrade, EduGrowth brings to delegates a USA EdTech Trade mission to build deep understanding of the USA EdTech Innovation Ecosystem within the context of the world’s leading EdTech event – ASU GSV.  

The proposed program combines market intelligence, private briefings, introductions and connections into the USA education sector and the ASU GSV conference aspects which aren’t described in the official brochure.  We will combine the public ASU GSV program with unique briefings and introductions to fast-track your export development in the USA.

Key points

A collaborative partnership between NSW Treasury: Study NSW, Global Victoria, Austrade and EduGrowth allows us to combine our complementary strengths to deliver an exceptional, well rounded program to accelerate your USA EdTech strategy.  You will meet a range of EdTech ecosystem leaders, the highest profile consultants that may support your journey and the agencies to facilitate your USA market analysis or entry strategy. 

Beginning in San Diego we will use ASU GSV as the backbone to the program.  Within and around the ASU GSV summit we will connect you to the leaders of the EdTech innovation ecosystems from around the world. You will leave San Diego with a deep understanding of the market and the connections to follow up whilst building the next step of your US EdTech journey.  

From San Diego we head to San Francisco, the global home of high growth tech-startups.  Here we will connect into the Bay Area EdTech ecosystem and learn how to establish an organisation in the USA. Core to the program is connecting with actual educators for review, reflection and advice on your product from their lens.
