Bearface Instructional Technologies Recognized as Top Innovator by Venture Summit West 2015

Bearface Selected as One of 50 Technology Companies to Present to Exclusive Audience of Investors

Indianapolis, IN February 2, 2015  Bearface Instructional Technologies, LLC has been selected to present at Venture Summit West 2015 in Mountain View, CA on February 11. The company is recognized as one of 50 Top Innovators from the technology, life sciences, clean-tech and EdTech sectors. Bearface, which publishes web-based textbooks, assessments and metacognitive analytics that replace traditional textbooks in college courses and employee wellness programs, will present to an exclusive audience of venture capitalists, private investors, investment bankers, corporate investors and strategic partners.

“We are excited to be selected to present at Venture Summit West. The timing couldn’t be better. We launched our first product in January and a second will go live in the next few weeks. Our sales pipeline is strong and we are positioned to exceed our revenue goal for 2015,” said Christopher Johnson, founder and CEO of Bearface. “Venture Summit West is a terrific opportunity for us to connect with investors who share our vision and can help us maintain momentum to drive growth.”

As a digital textbook publisher, Bearface will present in the EdTech category, which includes companies from corporate training, EdTech mobile, higher education, K-12, Next Gen and digital textbooks. Unmatched in the digital publishing market, Bearface offers personalized learning experiences and management tools that enable students to develop behavior change skills. The company also provides analytic tools that enable educators to demonstrate the efficacy of their programs in terms of attitudes, perceptions, and behaviors.

“Bearface isn’t a traditional textbook publisher and we’re not a massive open online course (MOOC). Our web-based textbooks and assessments personalize the learning experience for college students, and develop their learning and problem solving skills, not just their ability to memorize facts. We enable educators to easily demonstrate that they are effectively teaching students to communicate well, solve tough problems and adapt,” Johnson added.

The third annual Venture Summit West connects venture capitalists, angel investors, tech transfer professionals, senior executives of early stage and emerging growth companies, university researchers, incubators and service providers. The Summit will feature panel sessions with more than 40 top-tier venture capitalists and angel investors who will discuss trends, strategies and tips for early stage companies.
