Edugion first came to mind in 2004. Our founder Mitch Zeisler was at the time working on T.H.E. Conference Calendar a listing of every educational technology event in North America, sparking the idea that this could be expanded to list events in every industry. In 2010 T.H.E. Conference Calendar folded and discussion about Edugion started. Not being “techie,” the plan sat idle until 2012 when our C.T.O. Rob Mitchell jumped aboard. However, Mitch and Rob both having commitments to their day job, Edugion remained a dream. In 2018 after a six-year hiatus, Edugion started taking shape. Within those six years, the vision of what Edugion would be matured and evolved into what it is today and what it will be in the future.
