We Are EdSurge

EdSurge delivers insights and connects those exploring how technology can support equitable opportunities for all learners.

Our Story

Teacher, techies, storyteller. EdSurge was started in 2011 by Betsy Corcoran, Matt Bowman, Nick Punt and Agustin Vilaseca to connect the emerging community of edtech entrepreneurs and educators. We share detailed information about what emerging technologies can–and cannot–do to support learning among students in grades K-12 and in higher ed. We report on latest news and trends in the edtech industry to help educators using technology to support teaching and learning; entrepreneurs building edtech products; investors, policy makers and others involved with education.

Along with sharing news, trends and research, we connect people through our jobs board and through networking events, including virtual and live workshops and conferences. Our database of rich information about emerging products, both in K12 and higher ed, continues to be the go-to source for the industry.

With the right tools, technology can transform “learning” from something we did in classrooms at fixed hours of the day to something we can do anywhere, anytime.
