It has become a truism that education is ripe for change.
Education technology startups have been doing enormously well in recent years with record amounts of investment from venture capital and angel investors. Direct sales of technology into schools has never been higher and many edtech start-ups are being snapped up by large education organizations like Pearson as they watch their old business models crumble.
The Education Cluster at the MaRS Discovery District is home to around 60 education ventures that sell into or partner with the K-20 system in North America. They range from high-tech to low-tech, large to small, and for-profit to not-for-profit.
