FOTE14 conference debuts pitchfest

The annual FOTE (Future of Technology in Education) conference will host its first ever start-up pitchfest on Friday, 3rd October 2014

FOTE are inviting organisers invite all technology start-ups for a chance to win one of 10 spots to pitch their ideas to over 300 delegates. All submissions should be either directly or indirectly working on solutions aimed at the education sector. Potential applicants could be developing a prototype, refining and researching an idea or already have a working product or service with active users/subscribers.

If selected, start-ups will have three minutes to pitch their ideas and impress an audience of education technologists, IT directors, CIOs and senior managers.

Frank Steiner, Marketing Manager for ULCC, said: “The idea for this competition was partly inspired by a similar start-up event at Thinking Digital earlier this year, plus it is a natural extension of the 140 Challenge we held at a previous conference. We’re excited to see what new and innovative ideas people will bring to the table.”

For more information on how to apply, visit the FOTE 2014 website. Submissions close on Friday, 12th September 2014.
