When I started EDUKWEST in August 2009 I always had the goal to cover global trends in education technology. Of course due to a better funding and startup support ecosystem the US often took the mainstage in our coverage.
But something has changed in the European education startup scene. Over the past couple of months, maybe six to eight, I noticed that not only new startups are popping up again but also that the ecosystem seems to get a boost through events like Startup Weekend, Edtech Europe or investors and incubators like Macmillan Digital Education / Digital Science and Edxus Group.
Therefore I decided to launch EDUKWEST Europe. True to our mission statement “on the search for better education” we are going to dig ourselves into the European Education startup scene, trying to find the most promising players early on.
Also true to the European Union, this blog is going to feature articles in multiple languages. For the launch we are going to concentrate on English, French and German but more languages are going to be added over time.
Needless to say, I am pretty excited about this new blog and to cover the European EdTech startup scene in closer detail from now on. Of course, EDUKWEST is going to stay and cover the rest of the globe.
