Calver will discuss the future of the £6trn learning industry

It is worth an estimated £6trn (yes, that’s trillion), but the global education market is yet to fully embrace technology.

This remarkable opportunity has attracted a number of world-class investors, serious entrepreneurs and ground-breaking approaches to how learning is administered, accredited and consumed.

Macro trends have also presented further opportunities for technological innovation in the education sector.

For example, the automisation of white-collar work, increasingly competitive entry-level recruitment and the rapid growth of student numbers – estimated to be around 1bn by 2035.

LinkedIn’s acquisition of Lynda – the largest in LinkedIn’s history – is a prime example of many EdTech unicorns beating their way to the fore.

To dig a little deeper into this growing sector, SyndicateRoom is hosting ‘An evening with Simon Calver: The future of learning” on Monday 19 June.

The event will feature market insight from sector experts, such as serial entrepreneur Ulrik Juul Christensen, as well as from Simon Calver himself, one of the UK tech scene’s most respected investors.
