Ten edtech entrepreneurs from Ireland and Northern Ireland visited Baltimore on Monday in what was the first leg of a multi-city tour through the U.S.
The entrepreneurs will also visit Seattle, New York City and Boston as part of two-week exchange called EdTech Ireland, a program designed to give the group of 10 a general overview of how technology and new digital tools are changing STEM education in U.S. The program is from the Cultural Vistas, a New York based nonprofit that also has offices in Columbia, Maryland, Washington D.C. and Berlin and organizes cultural exchanges with a professional focus.
A stop in Washington, D.C., to visit the 1776 incubator took place during the day. Stops in Baltimore included a tour of the Betamore incubator in Federal Hill in the evening and a happy hour with local edtech entrepreneurs, including Jess Gartner, the founder of Allovue and a graduate of the AccelerateBaltimore incubator.
