Finance Teach-in Panel: VC investing in EdTech, Thurs 10/1 12:30-2:00 in C220

October 1, 2015 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Would you like the opportunity to hear the perspectives of three key investors in the emerging education technology space? Maybe you’re interested in VC/seed-stage investing generally, or in the intersection of education and technology, or in having an impact through scaling world-changing ideas — or you’re working on your own startup and want insight into all of the above. Haas MBAs of all motivations are invited to join a Finance Teach-in panel discussion on VC investing in EdTech, on Thurs, Oct 1 at 12:30-2:00 in C220.

This panel will include:

Amit Patel, Principal at Owl Ventures, backing entrepreneurs with solutions to drive student achievement: https://www.linkedin.com/pub/amit-patel/4/131/379

Ross Jensen, Portfolio Manager at Emerson Collective, spearheading its EdTech investing: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rosskjensen

And our own Jake Saperstein (Haas MBA ’11), Director of Innovation Policy and Social Investment at AT&T, running its EdTech accelerator: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jacobsaperstein

The format will be a moderated panel discussion, followed by general Q&A.

Teach-ins are an opportunity for students to practice talking the talk in a low-pressure environment, so please come ready for broad participation. You may want to ask about emerging trends, interesting investments, personal paths or advice on getting into this space.
