The annual ASU GSV Summit starts on Monday, May 8 in Salt Lake City. The ASU GSV Summit brings together the most impactful people from diverse constituencies – entrepreneurs, business leaders, educators, policymakers, philanthropists and university and district leaders – to create partnerships, explore solutions and shape the future of learning. It is the KEY conference for education, tech and business.

Cooley is a proud sponsor of the Summit, and the team below will be attending.


Jay Vaughan, Co-Chair, Edtech Practice

In addition, Greg Ferenbach, special counsel, will be speaking at the conference on a Global Program panel Tuesday, May 9. The session details are below.

China’s Edtech and Its Impact on the Future of Education

Tuesday, May 9
4-5 pm
Idaho Room

This panel will discuss the arguably largest and most dynamic education innovation market on the planet.  Yet China is notoriously difficult for global – especially US – firms to enter. Successful entrepreneurs and market experts will discuss the current state of play in China, including mega trends, policy and regulatory environment changes, and new perspectives on digital teaching and learning.

If you have any questions about the Summit or would like to setup meetings with the team attending, please reach out to Rebecca Lanz at or 202-728-7084.

We hope to see you there!
