Share a short description about your company:  

LearnSpace is an Edtech startup accelerator based in Paris supporting founders from all across Europe to build impactful and scalable products.

What are the key trends you believe have the power to transform the way we learn?

Peer-learning and focussing on social & emotional learning have a very big potential in reshaping the way we learn collaboratively. In terms of technology I believe in the power of adaptive learning and algorithms that can create personalized learning paths for each learners.

The theme of EdTechXEurope 2018 is ‘Eternally Learning’. What does eternal learning mean to you?

I love this year's theme because I deeply believe we are meant to be eternally learning in a world which constantly changes. Skills we know of today might be outdated in a few years' time and some studies say that 80% of the jobs students will fill in the future do not exist today. It means that we need to learn how to learn, unlearn and relearn new stuff every day.

What should the rest of the world learn about EdTech in your country?

The 'French Edtech' is one of the fastest growing ecosystems in Europe with approximately 300 startups, 2 Paris-based Edtech funds, 1 Edtech accelerator and the newly launched 'Edtech France' an organization gathering Edtech entrepreneurs who take collective action to grow their businesses in France and abroad

Why is it important for all players in the EdTech ecosystem to continuously connect, network and learn from each other?

It is of outmost importance to connect with other ecosystems, to get inspired by what's happening in neighboring countries, meet fellow entrepreneurs and connect with investors to grow

How does your current role allow you to make a difference to education and learning space?

My job is to map and shed light upon innovations in learning across the globe and I have just published my first book on what is happening in Europe. Beside writing about this topic, I often talk at large conferences, advise large companies and startups as part of my role at LearnSpace, a startup accelerator which connects startups with researchers, educators and business mentors in order for them to scale in Europe and beyond.

Who would you like to meet at the event?

Investors, startups, large corporations.

When you think about joining London EdTech Week and EdTechXEurope Summit this year, what are you looking forward to?

Connecting with like-minded people making things happen in Edtech globally! And it's always a pleasure to see my Edtech friends from abroad again! ;)
