New Zealand on the #EdtechWorldTour

New Zealand’s edtech sector will get the chance to discuss the future direction of education technology with two of Europe’s most passionate advocates of the burgeoning sector.



Audrey Jarre and Svenia Busson met in 2013 when both were studying at European Business School École des Hautes Etudes Commerciales de Paris located at Jouy-en-Josas in the southern suburbs of Paris, France. Now, these entrepreneurial graduates are in the throes of a world tour which brings them into contact with some of the best and brightest minds in edtech – including those in New Zealand, thanks to an invitation and support from ENZ.

Audrey and Svenia will be in New Zealand from 7 to 11 December, travelling to Auckland, Wellington and Dunedin to meet with edtech companies, see edtech in action at schools, and discuss edtech in education policy with government agency representatives. In Wellington on 9 December they will talk to the EdTech Meet Up group, a community of over 100 people with interests in edtech.

EdTech is an exciting and growing sector – the smart education and learning market is currently worth $121 billion globally and is forecast to grow to $345 billion by 2019.

New Zealand’s excellent education system and culture of innovation mean we are well-placed to develop edtech products and services for the world market and claim our market share. 

Raising the profile of New Zealand’s edtech expertise internationally is critical to achieving growth in this sector, and we expect that, after experiencing New Zealand's innovative edtech scene, Audrey and Svenia will be inspired to tell our story to their global network.

For more information about the visit see Audrey and Svenia’s website or email ENZ Business Development Manager Adele Bryant.
