Meet Our People

Meet Nick and Angela.

Collectively we’re educators, strategists, and technologists who are passionate about the future of education. We know that education must equip today’s learners with the skills to thrive in tomorrow’s world even if we don’t know what that looks like yet. Exponential technologies have the potential to have the biggest impact on deepening and accelerating learning, teaching and leading, but the real magic in transformation isn’t just about the tools or the tech. It’s about the ideas, the people, the businesses, and the schools who are building, testing, tweaking, incubating, investing in and using them. That’s why we have created LearnTech Lab, a boutique advisory firm whose vision is to transform education so that the learners, teachers and leaders of today thrive in an exponential future.
