Launch has found a home among the forward-thinking SXSWedu community as a place to experience and preview what’s unfolding in the education landscape. The cutting-edge technologies and innovations in learning that debut in Launch play a crucial role in supporting administrators, teachers and ultimately, students. The pairing of the entrepreneurial and education communities offers benefits to all education stakeholders and practitioners. The competition is a great opportunity for early stage startups seeking market exposure, investment and potential strategic partnerships. The Launch event is open to all SXSWedu badge holders.
