Bett Futures for edtech start ups

Brave thinking, new products and education game changers. It's one of the most anticipated features at Bett since its launch in 2015. Designed to showcase best in class edtech startups from around the world and provide a platform to explore emerging learning technologies and methodologies, it is a destination for educators, investors and school leaders. 

Each year Bett Futures gets a little more impressive, and our plans for Bett 2018 are staying true to form. An improved interactive led workshop area and tougher application process means a Bett Futures position in 2018 will be amongst the most coveted of accolades.

In association with Hambro perks Bett FuturesIntegration Partner

That’s why we’re calling for the most creative, most disruptive, most impactful early stage companies to come with us on this journey of transforming education.  We also want to serve as more than an exhibition space at an event.

Bett 2017 boasted over a hundred exhibitors across stage 1 and stage 2:

  • Stage 1 is for the truly budding company who are launching in the sector and want to gain market knowledge and insights quickly.
  • Stage 2 is for the slightly more mature company ready to generate real revenues.

This process is now open and we will reveal our cohort in batches this year with announcements set for May, August and November
