EdTech Innovations & the Secret to Strategic Partnerships -- Taylor Nieman (Co-Founder & CEO, Toucan)

Taylor Nieman is the Co-Founder & CEO of Toucan, an immersive learning tool that helps people improve their language skills while browsing the web.

In this episode, Taylor shares the secret to forging partnerships between startups and corporate behemoths with large distribution channels. She explains how early stage companies can get the attention of big companies but avoid getting bogged down in corporate bureaucracy to make sure a deal gets done.
