In addition to delivering a 3-minute pitch on stage, NUITEQ had it's own exhibition stand, where it's CEO and K-12 Technology Specialist Lynn Marentette were showcasing MultiTeach, the software suite of collaborative learning games for multi-user touchscreens in elementary school classrooms.
It was great to receive such positive feedback on MultiTeach and to hear how much potential visitors believed our software has in the classroom, to make learning more fun and exciting.
The evening prior to the event, speakers and pitching companies were invited for dinner hosted by the Ambassador of Sweden to the US, Björn Lyrvall, which was a great networking event with excellent food and overall a nice experience.
A special thanks goes out to Tillväxtverket, as they made this opportunity possible for us.
