ABOUT

EDvantage is an entrepreneurship platform for Edtech startups. We support early stage companies, led by exceptional and dedicated teams, from ideation to scale.
We work closely with the entrepreneurs from an investment and operational standpoint, in order to bring innovative ideas from concept to reality.

We invest in companies that have a great impact on learning and fancy those who has additional implementation in other domains. By investing in only a small number of companies each year, we can continue to spend significant time with the founders, and to offer them a reach to our global network, along this critical period in a startup life cycle.

Why Edtech? Why Now?

The future is shaped by the way we teach and learn in the present. Currently, we’re facing a pivotal point in the history of education. New and emerging technologies are not only intensifying learning, but changing the way we—at any age—learn and educate.
Today we face a window of opportunity to rethink the way we learn, reimagine our learning environments and reinvent new business models, whether the learning occurs in schools, at homes, as professional training or lifelong learning.
