The EdTech Track is a forum where entrepreneurship meets education, engaging participants in relevant discussions about how to re-imagine education and the impact of technology on learning.



In an increasingly interconnected world where it is impossible to predict the jobs of the future, the EdTech Track will shed light on how to build a society of lifelong learners capable of adapting to a rapidly changing world and confronting the challenges we face as a society.

Join us! Hear from educators, start-ups, entrepreneurs, visionaries and innovation experts about how we can teach young people the skills they need to be successful while encouraging them to engage in purposeful innovation to achieve the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
