Why we're here

The Dutch Edtech Foundation aims to connect the fragmented education and learning sector and as such, stimulate acceleration of the EdTech field nationwide. We connect the EdTech community, share insights and best practices, create an overview of the landscape and form consortia that focus on current concrete social challenges in the Netherlands. We believe that collaboration in this sector can lead to a higher accessibility of lifelong learning, speeding up development of the EdTech field and improvement of a variety of social issues.

With 120+ members, active community management and the first reports in development, Dutch Edtech is the platform for working on the future of learning.
