BESA is pleased to announce the third in our current series of the EdTech Exchange, in-person, private suppers.


The supper invites EdTech founders and their senior teams to meet with fellow, like-minded individuals to make new connections, broaden their network and sector knowledge.

The suppers are held in a private dining room at The Parcel Yard in King’s Cross station, and brings together twelve people, each with their own story to tell, to participate in a Chatham House-style discussion. Our diners will collectively contribute to an evening filled with shared experiences, lessons learned, and stories of problems solved.  

The event will be facilitated by Nina Iles, Head of EdTech at BESA and co-hosted by Nick Kind.

Nick Kind is a Managing Director in Tyton’s strategy consulting practice and is based in the UK. Nick joined Tyton Partners in April 2019 as a Senior Director, bringing over 20 years of experience in strategy, investment, corporate development, and digital product management, with most of his time concentrated in the education sector.  

Join the supper to gain insight into:

  • Long term horizon scanning – what are the technology trends that are of most interest to investors, or that founders should be following
  • How to pitch for investment – what are investors or fund managers looking for
  • Nick has sat where you are, hear his story and learn from his experiences
  • Your chance to ask Nick the questions that matter to you

Your ticket includes a two-course meal plus wine, beer, or soft drinks. Tickets are allocated on a strictly first-come, first-served basis and we will be operating a waiting list. Only one ticket per organisation.

Early Bird ticket: Book your ticket by 26th April for £80 + fees / Normal price: £95 + fees.


A message from Nick: 

“I’m looking forward to the evening and hope that we’re going to be a diverse and engaged group. I’d be more than happy to talk about some or all of - why I think “edtech” is a mostly useless description for a company; when companies are venture capital shaped and when they’re not, and why both can be more than fine; the dynamics of the US market; impact investors and all that can and can’t mean; how I hope the education system in the UK will change and why. But if anyone has really burning things they’d like to discuss which they think have broad relevance for the group and where I might be able to be helpful, please let us know in advance and we will see if we can get them in."
