Nele Mletschkowsky, Co-Founder and CEO of Quofox
Nele Mletschkowsky is CEO and Co-Founder at quofox, the global platform for lifelong learning.
After positions as Head of HR, education and IT consultant, since the EdTech start-up was founded in 2015, she has been pursuing the idea of making digital lifelong learning and education accessible to everyone and supporting companies and educational institutions in their digital transformation.
Our mission: We empower businesses to adapt to the new learning and new work paradigm in the midst of unprecedented change and digital transformation!
Riccarda Zezza, founder and CEO of Lifeed
With the aim to change the way work and life interact, Riccarda and her team developed a unique learning methodology that transforms life experiences into business skills. Her platform is used by more than 80 companies worldwide, involving over 30.000 users.
Sophie is the founder of the iTunes new and noteworthy, The Edtech Podcast. The mission of The Edtech Podcast is to improve the dialogue between ‘ed’ and ‘tech’ for better innovation, through storytelling. The podcast is downloaded from over 145 countries with the UK, US & Aus in the top 3. Sophie has spoken and moderated at a variety of events including SXSW EDU, Yidan Education Prize, ASU GSV Summit, and the Next Billion Edtech Summit. She is an industry mentor and advisor, a Reimagine Education, GESA Awards, Bett Awards and XPrize Adult Literacy judge, and previous Edtech50 and Edtech Digest winner.
Sophie is passionate about lifelong and everyday learning. If she’s not interviewing a University Vice-Chancellor, Edtech Investor, School Leader, or StartUp about education innovation, she’s engrossed in Teach Your Monster to Read or wrestling her lockdown baby. A keen cyclist, she has recently relocated to West Devon which she considers the English version of the Pyrenees. She is very lucky to work with a distributed team on The Edtech Podcast.
