Bridging the Gap: Making an impact in education technology startups with Sergio Monsalve

Exciting career opportunities exist in some of the most transformational education technology (edtech) startups in Silicon Valley, and many new disruptive edtech products and services are launching at record pace. While these early stage startups and established organizations may have some skilled technical and business talent, we know that they absolutely need the analytical skills, research discipline, learning science, and knowledge that Stanford graduates have. This means that if you are interested in education, you could have an opportunity to shape one of these companies and make an enormous impact early in your career. This discussion is helpful to anyone at Stanford interested in learning more about careers in entrepreneurial companies that use technology to help improve education.
