ClearPath Syndicate membership is an exclusive, executive level or senior leadership opportunity that promotes thought leadership, personal and business development.

The Program

Leading a business can be isolating, and the additional dimensions of the education sector creates unique challenges for EdTech entrepreneurs. Our ClearPath Syndicate Program aims to connect EdTech Entrepreneurs, education sector business leaders and leading educators regularly to enhance the journey through connection and collaboration.
