SETDA Names Emerging Private Sector Partners

The State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) has selected nine emerging private sector partners to highlight at its upcoming Emerging Technologies Forum June 26 in Philadelphia.

After a competitive process to pick the nine companies and in return for a sponsorship fee, the nine companies will have the opportunity to meet with state educational technology representatives during the forum, give a presentation on their products, host a table-top demonstration and attend workshops and networking events. They will also be able to take advantage of SETDA branding in their own marketing efforts over the next year and interact with members in other ways.

"State educational technology leaders will receive the benefit of learning about our strategic partners' high quality digital learning products and services," said SETDA Interim Executive Director Lan Neugent. "At the same time, these companies will benefit from greater understanding of existing and emerging policies and practices in the states."

The nine companies were selected by SETDA on the basis of their status as emerging companies, their ability to provide technology to education and their potential to scale their efforts on either a state-wide or multi-state basis.

The nine companies are:

"We're thrilled to be selected," said Nureva CEO Nancy Knowlton. "We look forward to receiving feedback and gaining insight to help guide our product direction."
