First Annual Venture Capital in Education Summit 2009 Launches in May 2009

April 22nd 2009 Despite education representing the second largest U.S. economic sector, entrepreneurs in the education market grapple with the gap between funding for nascent ventures and that available to later-stage businesses. In an attempt to reverse this trend, leading independent investment bank Berkery Noyes and Stanford University today announced the Venture Capital in Education Summit 2009, an inaugural meeting designed to connect early-stage capital with transformative education sector trends and innovative early-stage education companies. The Summit is scheduled for May 29, 2009 at the Schwab Center on the Stanford University campus.
