LearnLaunch Campus Celebrates Oktoberfest with Boston’s Edtech Community

Edtech supporters came together last week to celebrate education technology in true Oktoberfest fashion. LearnLaunch Campus hosted the event with live music, food, and of course, some Oktoberfest beer.

Caroline Smith, the event’s organizer, said the event was meant “to help connect edtech related companies with teachers and community members.” Around 170 people from the northeast came to exchange ideas at the campus which also houses the LearnLaunch Institute and LearnLaunch Accelerator.

The campus is Boston’s only co-working space dedicated to edtech startups. The accelerator has graduated 13 companies from two cohorts. Graduates include EduCanon, Intellify Learning, and Gradeable. Interested edtech startups in becoming part of the new cohort can apply here. The deadline is October 31st.

Boston’s edtech community was abuzz with talk of the future and current projects. Some guests were in the process of creating edtech tools while others came out just to see what was going on.
