The Green

29 Clerkenwell Green, London, EC1R 0DU

Started by:

Dinner for London’s education startups to break bread, network, share experiences & contacts.

Who’s invited: This is dinner for people working in, or interested in, education startups.

We had a great time at our last Edtech dinner back in June in partnership with Mendeley, so here are the details for the next get together!

Our after dinner speaker will be Ben Whately, COO at Memrise. Ben trained as a psychologist at Oxford University before becoming fascinated with learning languages. Feeding this obsession, he moved to a remote corner of China to teach himself Chinese and try to work out how learning languages can be made easier.

He then wrote a book about that - delightful, but mildly stressful - experience, before getting distracted by a rival fascination with manufacturing. He founded an online shirt tailor in Shanghai and then set up a vintage motorcycle restoration factory in Beijing before eventually returning to England and to his obsession with making language learning easy. 4 years ago he started Memrise while living in a yurt in co-founder Ed Cooke's garden.

Memrise is now one of the largest language learning networks in the world, where more than 2.5 million people learning over 500 different languages, and Ben has graduated to living in a fairly normal house. His fascination with manufacturing is dormant, but not dead. The Memrise community uses images and science to make learning easy and fun.

Price includes: Private dining experience and after dinner speaker, 2 courses and all drinks, highly curated and relevant networking.

On the menu:
Slow roast lamb shoulder, or
Spiced lentil, pumpkin and goats cheese pie (for vegetarians)
Warm potato salad
Summer side salads
Chocolate brownie with crème fraiche
Beer, wine & soft drinks
