Event Info

Money? Tick. Deal Flow? Tick. A market ready for digital disruption? Tick. This has a lot of people wondering if perhaps its time to stop thinking about the next big bank killer and start thinking about how to turn education on its head.

Silicon Cape’s February TechTalk is on EdTech.  You will meet some of the new startups in the space and hear from people who have been casually disrupting this space for a while as they discuss whether EdTech is the new FinTech, the role that it can play in SA in supplementing traditional education and creating new, future learning solutions.

Panelist include:

  • Sam Paddock, CEO & founder of GetSmarter
  • Jamie Martin, ex Advisor to the UK Secretary of State for Education & heading up the Edtech Cluster at CITI
  • Arlene Mulder, co-founder of WeThinkCode
