Catherine Saldutti joined Amy Freedman, Senior Trade Specialist for the U.S. Commercial Services in the U.S. Department of Commerce to present at the 2019 CLOSE IT Conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The leading conference gathers thought leaders and practitioners from education, technology, policy, HR, and foundations. The focus is the bridge from education to workplace, from school to community, from young to adult learners. Catherine and Amy shared how US Commercial Services provides tools to EdTech companies to enter global markets, which are very helpful guides in new territories. EduChange has experience with these offerings as a partner to US Commercial Services. Often, a long-term strategic process is needed for global market entry, particularly in education, where policies vary from country to country and cultural norms vary regionally. EduChange is proud to have worked with schools in Bahamas, Mexico, Brazil, Japan and Malaysia. We are beginning to collaborate with organizations in China as well. The 2019 CLOSE IT Conference was a truly interdisciplinary convention!
