The Penn State EdTech Network is excited to work in partnership with Dreamit to present a Customer Immersion at the Invent Penn State Venture and IP Conference on October 6th from 9 – 11 am. Presentations will be given by seven EdTech startups selected from hundreds of startups that applied to be part of the fall 2016 Penn State – Dreamit EdTech Accelerator.
Penn State is hosting this event to provide the education and entrepreneurial community a first-look at these compelling startups as they focus on disciplines including K-12, presentation and speech skill development, and higher education learning through gameplay. The Customer Immersion will feature brief presentations, followed by product demonstrations, and an opportunity for startup representatives to network with those in attendance.
