About the Education Investor Summit

The Michelson 20 Million Minds Foundation is teaming up with Village Capital to host the largest-ever edtech demo day showcase on Tuesday, September 27 in San Francisco. The day-long event brings together 17 innovative startups that will demonstrate their technology-driven solutions aimed at closing the achievement, skills, and opportunity gaps.

For our entrepreneurs, this is an incredible opportunity to connect with investors and mentors who will share their expertise in a series of mock board meetings during the day. In the evening, startups will show off their progress and mingle with leading business and education thought leaders. We will also host a Fireside Chat with Ryan Craig, Author of College Disrupted: The Great Unbundling of Higher Education and Managing Director of University Ventures.

Like Village Capital, we believe every person deserves access to an affordable and high-quality education that leads to a meaningful career. All of the companies in our cohorts are committed to achieving equity in K-12, higher education, and the workforce.

But the 20 Million Minds Foundation’s commitment to student success goes beyond that. We’ve worked hard to ensure that diversity is a priority in our cohort investments. More than half of the 17 edtech companies are led by women or minorities, and our leadership teams come from the same communities we’re working to serve.

We are so excited about The Education Investor Summit 2016: Demo Day Showcase. These 17 companies are developing innovative solutions to help more people achieve their full potential—and we can’t wait for you to meet them.
