Announcing IMMERSION: The Most Hands-on, Info-Packed Event We’ve Ever Created for Companies

By Betsy Corcoran     Feb 13, 2018

On April 15, EdSurge is hosting a one-day clinic on building your edtech business, EdSurge IMMERSION.This will be the most hands-on, info-packed session we’ve ever created for edtech entrepreneurs—and we hope you’ll consider joining us.

It will take place in San Diego, one day before the ASU + GSV Summit. Yes, I realize that’s a Sunday (so sorry!). But we think this session will be a terrific way for you to kick off the week. Not planning to attend that conference? If you decide to go, EdSurge IMMERSION attendees will receive 50% off the regular attendee ticket price to the ASU + GSV extravaganza.

Here’s the plan:

MORNING: We’ll kick off with a panel of school leaders who will share what they are looking for in edtech products and relationships; how they’re managing procurement; and what entrepreneurs should never ever say. We’ll also have lightning talks by leading organizations that provide the tools you need to be effective: CRMs, HR platforms, customer support, social media platforms and so on.

LUNCH: We’ll have a very special guest speaker sharing the characteristics of successful organizations.

AFTERNOON: This is all hands-on: an intimate set of clinics with people who have been there. Bring your pitch deck, your hiring plans, or other roadmaps and get advice from edtech leaders. We’ll wind up with the day with a “shark tank” style evaluation of one of the tools essential for your business.

IMMERSION will be limited to about 200 entrepreneurs—our way of guaranteeing that you’ll have a personal and valuable experience.

If you’re ready to sign up now, we’re offering you a $50 discount until March 1. After March 1, the participation fee for this event will be $400. Additionally, the first 50 people who sign up will receive an additional $100 off (use the code jumprightin at registration).

We hope to see you on April 15th!
