Join #TechHubTuesday at TechHub to experience great demos from the exciting tech entrepreneur community. Follow the # all day to see other demos taking place in Bengaluru and then London.

Each startup has 5 minutes to demo their product in front of a live audience, it’s not a pitch but an opportunity for each startup to explain (and show) what they have been working on. After each demo there is live Q&A with the audience. The idea is to foster innovation and iteration.

Tracks for faculty bring you back to why you love teaching in the first place. We help you integrate technology better in the classroom, in ways that make sense for you and your students. Learn hands-on Canvas skills to make you a Canvas master. Gain confidence if your school has just moved to Canvas.
