About the Speaker

Santi Herrero

Santi is the co-founder and CTO at EDpuzzle. Telecom engineer from Universidad Politécnica de Catalunya (UPC), he spent his last year of university working in his final project at Tongji University of Shanghai, China. It was in China where he discovered how to channel his programming skills to build products people want. Shortly after, he gathered with his 3 friends and co-founders (which he had known since the age of 3 and who were his colleagues all the way from kindergarten to university), and started what now is EDpuzzle directly at the heart of Silicon Valley.

EDpuzzle is an educational platform where teachers can turn any video into their personal, interactive and accountable lesson. EDpuzzle launched over 3 years ago in San Francisco after being part of ImagineK12 (Y Combinator), one of the best accelerator programs in the world. Today, over 9 million teachers and over 25% of schools in the USA, adopt EDpuzzle to engage their students using videos. With offices in Barcelona and San Francisco, EDpuzzle is actively looking to attract talent to accomplish the mission of offering to every student in the world (no matter which culture and language) the possibility to easily access outstanding educational resources.
