In June, Yousician were very happy to attend EdTechXEurope 2018 – Europe’s largest summit on the future of learning and work. With music education at the heart of everything we do, it was fascinating to hear industry leaders discuss the future of learning and how technology can enhance, fortify and revolutionize the way people around the world are taught. Yousician have already begun such a revolution in the music world, reimagining the way people learn to play a musical instrument. As global population trends continue upwards, it’s clear the education industry will need to embrace technology to meet the needs of the future. Platforms like Yousician are a prime example of how this can succeed.
As part of the event, Yousician was invited to take part in the premier “Elevator to the Future” pitch competition. Each of the 20 finalists was given 30 seconds to pitch their company to the conference before the 850+ summit attendees voted on their favourite.
Yousician took the stage with our trademark ukulele and, after a very brief description of our work, voting was opened. Later that afternoon, Yousician was declared ‘Audience Favourite’ at the EdTechXGlobal All Star Awards, having fended off stiff competition from the other 19 companies.
Thanks to EdTechX for the prize and their organization of the summit. And well done to all the other winners. Until next year…
