Game-Changing Technologies and The Future of Learning

"Exponential technologies like AR/VR/XR and augmented intelligence are gearing up to change everything we know about learning and education. We are accelerating towards the most significant disruption of the educational sector since Gutenberg's printing press, or even since the invention of writing ca 3000 BC! Of course this also means massive opportunities for the creative pioneers and trailblazers who will emerge as innovation leaders in education. Most exciting times!"

Ideas are cheap, but how not to freakin fail?

Nowadays it's easy to get inspired. You open a TEDX speech, wander across loads of websites stating the huge loads of funding available. And then you decide to drop everything you do and straightforward jump into the startup world. During this short presentation, I will disclose the key things needed in order to build a sustainable project. Funding possibilities. And what not to do.
