Highlights & Best Bits from the 2016 ASU GSV Summit
This week, the Learnosity team packed their bags and headed to sunny San Diego, California to the 2016 ASU GSV Summit. The event was a massive success for us, with Learnosity having involvement in several areas; from sponsorship to roundtables to presentations. Here’s our recap on this year’s event!
The Summit took place from April 18th – 20th in the Manchester Grand Hyatt. ASU GSV continues to bring together the most impactful, high-profile individuals and companies, with this year’s guests including Bill Gates and Dr. Condoleezza Rice, to name but a few. Aiming to support and catalyze the entrepreneurial ecosystem in education, it remains to be one of the most popular edtech extravaganzas every year.
We were delighted to be one of the key sponsoring companies of this year’s summit, supporting the event alongside a list of other well-accomplished, innovative companies.

It was a fantastic honor to host a roundtable at this year’s event. On Tuesday, Learnosity CEO & Co-Founder, Gavin Cooney, held a 30 minute breakout session: “The API-ification of Education. What do Uber, Spotify and Airbnb have in Common?”.
The roundtable discussion looked at some of the most well-known multi-billion dollar companies in the world that chose to leverage the successful infrastructures of other organizations to build their product or service, resulting in them holding the upper hand with a stronger, more unique, up-to-date offering. The challenge of emulating this success within the education sector was thoroughly explored, with an eye-opening reflection on the great build vs. buy debate.
We were delighted to have such a successful roundtable session, with an amazing turnout and tonnes of engagement. Many thanks to everyone for coming and getting involved! We thoroughly enjoyed it!
Learnosity Company Presentation
As well as the Learnosity Roundtable, Gavin also presented at the ASU GSV Growth Company Presentations sessions on Monday evening.
Again, we were delighted to have such a fantastic turnout for this presentation that focused on the Learnosity business model and the company’s success story to date.

ASU GSV was such an awesome event! For the Learnosity team, it was a fantastic experience and we were honored to have such a presence across a number of different areas of the highly regarded, well-organized event. ASU GSV is certainly a must-go summit for anyone in the EdTech industry.
