Episode 55: Innovation and Tech Zoom In: EdTech

A new week of Breaking Banks Europe, this time with a discussion around the facilitation of knowledge through the usage of technology – commonly known as EdTech. Paolo Sironi leads this 3-part interview with 3 different initiatives that are bringing education to new standards, by using the digital space as a way for new literacy and inclusion methods.
We welcome Aape Pohjavirta – Founder and President of Funzi, that brings us his innovative way of transforming “how the world learns”, with their unique platform for bringing optimized courses to users globally; Matthew Jones (VP Content Acquisition & Strategy) tells us the story and mission of Perlego (dubbed “Spotify for textbooks”) – a subscription-based digital online library focusing on the delivery of academic, professional and non-fiction eBooks; and Jessica White (Senior Consultant) from EDUvation, a consultant focused on supporting the implementation of ideas and the development and expansion of EdTech start-ups.
