The unraveling of Silicon Valley Bank jolted the universe of education companies who had counted on the institution and had come to regard it as the “bank of innovation,” in the words of one ed-tech leader. What will be the long-term implications of the bank’s implosion on the work of education startup companies, and on investors who seek to help those fledgling businesses grow? What options are left for entrepreneurs looking for reliable and creative financial support?
In this webinar, EdWeek Market Brief stages a discussion with entrepreneurs and investors on how SVB’s fall changes the landscape for education companies, and for investors.
Attendees will come away with valuable insights on the following:
- Where ed-tech startups will turn for financial support now that SVB is no longer an option
- How SVB’s undoing fits into a broader slowdown of venture capital investment into K-12 education, and how venture capitalists are expanding their portfolios or retrenching
- More broadly, what are the prospects for innovation in a market where creative and flexible lending may now be harder to come by?
