About this event

Startup world is so inspiring because of the endless spirit to solve some of the toughest problems. And making education relevant, efficient and fun is one of the key challenges for moving society into the right direction. “I’ve never let my school interfere with my education” said Mark Twain over a century ago, but do we feel any different today?! It’s 2018 and we keep hearing how current school system isn’t working and is failing to train us for the real world. At Startup Grind we found some of those EdTech heroes who are passionate to spend their days and nights reshaping the future of education.

Join us on Tuesday, 30th of October at Oslo House of Innovation for an evening focused on Edtech!
