One-to-One Business Connections

About One-to-One Meetings

Meet the right people, for the right reasons, during the One-to-One Business Connections at the Education Impact Symposium in San Francisco. Leverage your time at our conferences to the fullest by having ETIN schedule meetings in advance with companies that can help you meet strategic business objectives. These fast-paced exchanges will help pave the way for increased capital, revenue, and strategic alliances between participants.

ETIN staff will set up One-to-One Business Connections meetings at designated times during the conference. We will select companies to meet with you based on the preferences you describe in a quick survey. In order to participate in the One-to-One Business Connections you must be a registered attendee of the event, complete and submit the participation form during the open period and fit the criteria as either a listening or presenting company (including no overt sales of services).
