Apply your edtech innovation skills to solve some of the most pressing problems in learning engineering.

Conception X is delighted to announce the launch of its Tech for Education Challenge.

Aimed at venture scientists involved in education who wish to apply their research and/or startup to solve education challenges, the Challenge provides a unique opportunity to engage with one of the most prominent edtech organisations worldwide.

The Challenge focus is aimed at improving educational outcomes by leveraging computing and data to dramatically increase the effectiveness of learning science as a discipline.

The Challenge is supported by Schmidt Futures, a philanthropic initiative founded by Eric and Wendy Schmidt that bets early on exceptional people making the world better.
