The NYC DOE iZone hosts a regular #SharkTankEDU event series to help startups build better products for education. We’re very excited to be partnering with them on Thursday, October 13th to feature our latest edtech cohort companies!
We’ve adapted the Shark Tank show model to improve information flow between educators and edtech startups. The event format includes up to four startups, who demo their edtech product in front of seven NYC Educator Sharks. The Sharks then have 15 minutes for Q&A with the product developer. This is a great opportunity to learn about new and upcoming edtech products and hear feedback to developers about how the product aligns to NYC School needs.
