Educause, an association dedicated to strengthening higher education by optimizing the impact of information technology on colleges and universities, will present its Start-Up Alley and Game Changers Business Competition at its annual conference in Orlando, FL, at the Orange County Convention Center from September 30 through October 2, 2014. Educause hosts this highly-focused networking space in its exhibit hall for education technology start-up companies to showcase their products and services to an audience of more than 4,000 chief information officers, information technology directors, and other key technology professionals at colleges and universities.

“Creating an environment for our members to explore new and emerging technologies, while simultaneously offering a forum for education entrepreneurs to interact and connect with campus technology professionals, is the core of this initiative,” said Diana Oblinger, president and chief executive officer at Educause. Lida Hasbrouck, chief communications officer of Ginkgotree and a 2013 Start-Up Alley participant, said,“Start-Up Alley was a great experience for us. We made strategic connections with other startups, potential partner companies, and even received investment and acquisition interest. Any ed tech start-up company would benefit from the Educause Start-Up Alley.”

After a rigorous selection process, only 27 companies will be chosen to participate in the fourth annual Start-Up Alley this year. Companies that secure a space in Start-Up Alley will be eligible to vie for one of 12 slots in the second Educause Game Changers Business Competition, also taking place during the association’s annual conference. Introduced in 2012, the competition provides up-and-coming technology companies a spotlight session in front of an expert panel of venture capitalists, investors, and education technology leaders. Presenting companies will be judged on how they identified a higher education IT issue or challenge, and how well technology was applied to address this issue. Winners will receive a cash prize from Start-Up Alley sponsor Higher One, as well as marketing resources from Educause.

Recognizing the tremendous growth in the number of technology startups in the higher education community, Educause introduced Start-Up Alley in 2010. According to the research and data analytics firm, CB Insights, there appears to be a growing appetite for education investments by the venture capital community: Education technology investments reached $1.25 billion in 2013 topping $1 billion for the second year in a row. That trend continues in 2014 as 103 education technology venture and equity transactions were executed during the first quarter, totaling more than $559 million.

The range of technology companies participating in Start-Up Alley is very diverse. Companies interested in participating in Start-Up Alley are encouraged to apply through the website.
