Mintz, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C. and LearnLaunch, New England’s leading edtech organization dedicated to connecting, educating, and growing the regional ecosystem of edtech entrepreneurs, educators, investors, companies, and policy leaders, are pleased to announce that they have entered into a partnership whereby Mintz will become a legal industry sponsor of LearnLaunch.
“We are very excited to see Mintz commitment to supporting the growth of the edtech ecosystem in Boston. We are looking forward to developing a strong partnership that will benefit innovators, learners, and educators in our city and across the global marketplace” said Hakan Satiroglu, co-founder of LearnLaunch.
Although 2014 will be Mintz inaugural year supporting LearnLaunch, the firm is no stranger to working with education technology companies and entrepreneurs. With decades of experience guiding entrepreneurs and start-ups through the corporate life cycle, Mintz will provide special knowledge-sharing sessions, open office hours at the LearnLaunch campus in Boston’s Back Bay and will facilitate introductions between the fledgling companies and investors, university administrators, school officials and other relevant contacts.
“Edupreneurs are shaping the future of our educational model by taking learning to an innovative online platform – creating a faster and more accessible platform for our students and teachers,” said Michael Fantozzi, Head of Mintz Boston Office. “We believe that edtech is poised for tremendous growth and will transform the face of education in our society. Mintz is thrilled to become more deeply engaged in Boston’s start-up community with a partner that shares our vision for public advancement.”
