GSVlabs’ hallways are far from quiet this week.

Eleven of the Labs’ EdTech entrepreneurs have been selected to present at next week’s prestigious ASU/GSV EdTech Summit in San Diego. This leading education summit, with 3,500+ attendees and a keynote from Bill Gates, is their crucial chance to shine in front of a sold out audience.

GSVlabs’ pitch coaches are on hand to help sharpen these presenters’ skills as they prepare to share ideas, products and services that they nurtured in the Redwood City-based EdTech Lab. Prepping their programs with experts and consultants brought in to help these young companies tell their stories is one way that GSVlabs gives these fledgling EdTech companies a head start in this competitive, dynamic field.

“We are extremely proud of the eleven companies that are on their way to this strategic summit,” says GSVlabs CEO Marlon Evans. “They are an important measure of our effectiveness in helping early stage companies find success and a global audience for their ideas.”

Meet the Startups

The eleven EdTech startups from GSVlabs selected to present at the 7th Annual ASU/GSV Summit, include:

Adjunct Professor Link, Chalk.com, CodeSpark, CoPilot, Credly, Kindoma, Marine Learning Systems, Proformative, ReBoot Career Accelerator for Women, Vocatio, and zyBooks.

All capture opportunities that address the realities of education across the lifespan, empowering the ecosystem to create generations of global citizens.
