Now in its fifth year, the 2014 Arizona State University + GSV Education Innovation Summit, known to many as "Davos in the Desert," is a dynamic, three-day convergence of industry leaders and visionaries – educators, investors, philanthropists and entrepreneurs representing over 230 disruptive education companies. The summit brings together some of the world's most passionate and energetic players in the education innovation space to stimulate opinions, debate, fundraising, strategic alliances and overall community activism toward global enrichment.

This signature event features a comprehensive agenda including company presentations, workshops, panels and keynote speakers. Summit 2014 speakers include former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, NBA legend Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Coach Lou Holtz, Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker, Chegg CEO Dan Rosensweig, former North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue, and the CEO of GSV Capital and GSV Asset Management Michael Moe, among others.

Summit participants range from established dignitaries to youthful up-and-comers — including governors and mayors, founders and CEOs, venture capitalists, and world-renowned philanthropists. Additionally, a number of GSV portfolio companies will present at this year's Summit including 2U Inc., Chegg, CorpU, Coursera, Curious.com, DreamBox Learning, EdSurge, Fullbridge, General Assembly, Global Education Learning (GEL), JAMF Software, Knewton, Ozy Media, Parchment, rSmart, Silicon Valley Data Sciences, Stormwind, and Tynker.

"Over the past five years, we have seen tremendous growing interest in education innovation. This interest stems from all stakeholders including educators, policy makers, entrepreneuers, and investors. Today it is clear that education matters not only for how an individual performs, but also for how a company succeeds, and for that matter, how a country evolves," commented Michael Moe, founder and CEO of GSV Capital.
