Session Title: What EdTech Can Teach Us About the Future of the Innovation Economy

In this session, we'll explore the state of EdTech around the country (and globe) and dive into what it means for the tech economy in Austin and beyond. We'll discuss what the future of EdTech looks like, and why tech companies should be paying attention to everything from public policy to startup funding for EdTech ventures. Last, we'll discuss what companies can do to help reverse the trend of declining participation by local students in STEM fields by providing details on opportunities to engage with local companies and schools who most need their help.
