From startup to scaleup: Transitions, struggles, and big bets

"Let's make education better." That's the simple idea that brought Top Hat's co-founders Mike Silagadze and Mohsen Shahini together. Their mission: to make higher education more engaging, effective, and affordable, by providing professors with the tools and content they need to support student success. But how do you disrupt an industry that's resistant to change and still falls back on chalkboards and heavy paper textbooks, whose costs have risen 1,041 per cent in the last 40 years?

Participants will learn lessons o busines strategy, tips on fundraising, and advice on hiring.
