EduGrowth welcomes Rita Ferrandino at our Women’s Education Leaders Syndicate on 29 February 2024. 

Rita is an education executive with decades of experience building sales for education publishers and technology companies. She founded Arc Capital Development to support early-stage EdTech leaders to establish product-market-fit in the US and continues to draw on her expertise as a mentor via the LearnLaunch Accelerator and UPenn’s graduate school of education.

As a woman who has built a career at the top of the education and EdTech sales sector in the US, Rita’s continued endeavour to support and expand the sector underscores her commitment to fostering emerging talent in the EdTech landscape.

In this session, Rita will discuss her insights on the latest trends shaping the US EdTech landscape and her advice on how to break into the US market. From the early stages of her career to her experience working with some of the globe’s leading vendors, Rita shares her advice on how to find success in a volatile yet lucrative industry.

About the Women’s Education Leaders Syndicate

Investment NSW has partnered with EduGrowth to establish the Women's Education Leaders Syndicate.

The Syndicate will connect women in the NSW EdTech community to foster executive development and sector wide connections and collaborations.  Our data shows that women are isolated in the EdTech vertical and building a community focused on entrepreneurial support for women would bolster the connectedness of female leaders across the EdTech space and alongside the education sector.
