Emerging education technology has progressed from being an interesting phenomenon to now redefining the way education and learning are approached around the world. While the United States had set the initial pace for investment in ed tech, international investments are now soaring across Asia, China, India and Africa. At the same rate, the required skills, experience and expectations of leadership in education today are rapidly evolving as innovative products, programs and platforms expand globally. Ed tech companies are now in search of leaders with expertise in scaling, often seeking talent from other technology sectors, yet who can be motivated by a mission for improving people’s lives through education.
With the scale of anticipated growth becoming the new reality, a diverse set of education organizations and investors are increasingly looking for the next generation of talent.
