THE BEST EDTECH ACCELERATORS AROUND THE WORLD

If you have ambitious plans to start a new edtech company or scale one you already have launched in 2019, the good news is that there is a growing network of support available to help ensure you’re successful. Just a few years ago edtech accelerators were still relatively rare, and many more broadly focused tech accelerators were not interested in the edtech market. Today, it is possible to apply to edtech accelerators around the world. This article offers insight into some of the world’s top edtech accelerators with details on each accelerator’s eligibility requirements, application deadlines, and most importantly, their funding opportunities and terms.If you’re launching an edtech startup, there are many reasons to consider joining an accelerator. First, most accelerators offer some form of funding. While it is sometimes just enough to permit you and your team to spend a few months focusing on product development or testing, in some cases, it can be a significantly higher amount. Second, you’ll gain valuable access to mentorship and coaching, and these relationships often continue long after an accelerator ends. Third, many accelerators can help you gain access to testing markets. In edtech, this is especially important since it can be especially tricky to test run new products in schools. If an accelerator has an established relationship with a school or school board, testing your product or service will be much easier. Finally, and most importantly, participating in an edtech accelerator will give you access to potential investors. As any founder knows, just getting a chance to pitch your company to investors can pose a challenge.
