We Are EdSurge

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

Our Story

Teachers, techies, storytellers. EdSurge was founded in 2011 by Betsy Corcoran, Matt Bowman, Nick Punt and Agustin Vilaseca to connect the emerging community of education technology entrepreneurs and educators.

As a leading education news organization, we report on the people, ideas and technologies that shape the future of learning. Through our work, we aim to help educators, entrepreneurs, policymakers and other stakeholders be part of the rich and complex conversations about the evolving learning environments for everyone and the technologies and tools that support them.

Along with sharing news, trends and research, EdSurge connects people through our jobs board and through networking events, including virtual and live workshops and conferences. Our database of rich information about emerging products in K-12 and higher education continues to be the go-to source for the industry.
