LESSONS FROM EDTECH INVESTING WITH MATTHEW O’KANE OF NEXUS INVESTMENT VENTURES

Edtech is far from uncommon in EIS investing, but is still a little away from the mainstream. Matthew O’Kane from Nexus Investment Ventures discusses his experiences from investing in the area.

They talk about the sector a little and why the target customers may not be who we think they are. However, the bulk of the discussion is a dive into the eight-year journey with Boclips, a market place for providing licensed video clips for educational purposes. They dig into some of the bumps along the way, particularly what happened when a founder left and how the company and Nexus coped with that.

Matthew contrasts this, ultimately successful investment, with a recent failure to draw out several lessons that can be taken from the difference between the two companies.
