Inkling is reinventing publishing in the era of iPad, and we've started by
redefining the textbook. Beginning with the world’s best textbooks from
leading publishers, Inkling rebuilds each from the ground up into enhanced,
engaging and interactive experiences. But it's about more than just
textbooks. Look between the lines, and you’ll see a revolution in
publishing: a new platform for creating, distributing and consuming
interactive learning content. Based in San Francisco, Inkling is backed by
Sequoia Capital and Tenaya Capital, and partners with the world's leading
educational publishers.

Inkling is visiting campus on *September 22*!  Come learn about their quest
to reinvent the way people learn and the technical challenges they've come
across along the way.  Pinocchio's will be served, so come hungry!

A native of Nova Scotia, Canada, Matt graduated from Harvard with a degree

up. After more than two years in Beijing building Apple’s first Asian

education market development group under the VP of Education. Matt’s passion
for education and deep market knowledge made him a thought leader and valued
strategist within Apple before leaving to build Inkling.
