THE BEST EDTECH ACCELERATORS AROUND THE WORLD

eLearningInside | January 02, 2019

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.

Once you know how to read, it feels so natural that it is easy to take for granted as an innate skill we all possess—kind of like riding a bicycle and forgetting you had to learn how. Yet, we continue to see a growing crisis of illiteracy across our education system, with students at every grade level falling behind in reading test scores.

Endurance Learning Launches New Resource for Learning & Development

Endurance Learning | August 17, 2021

Endurance Learning has launched a new website going in-depth into 51 Elements of Amazing Learning Experiences, as defined in Brian Washburn's book, What's Your Formula?: Combine Learning Elements for Impactful Training. The companion website lets anyone in the Learning & Development field dig deeper into all 51 elements and find more resources to learn and explore. "When Brian came to me with his first draft of the book, I almost immediately thought about how valuable this information could be in a free resource on the web," said Tim Waxenfelter, COO and co-founder of Endurance Learning. "Our hope is that the elements and formula analogies help trainers to more easily visualize strategies which they can apply immediately to their learning programs." From critical gas-like elements like the air we breathe, present in every training room (think instructional design or visual design), to radioactive elements, powerful and dangerous yet commonly used (think PowerPoint), the new site lets every learning and development professional explore the elements and how they interact. Whether you're an experienced learning designer or new to the field, this website, and the book that inspired it, was created to help you find inspiration for your next training program. "I'm incredibly proud of the book and believe that readers will and should want more from it once they finish. If we're trying to innovate and create a more powerful learning experience, experimenting is going to be part of that process. 51elementsoflearning.com was built to support professionals as they try new approaches to learning." said Brian Washburn, CEO and co-founder of Endurance Learning. About Endurance Learning Endurance Learning was founded by instructional designers with a deep background in adult learning. Endurance Learning has leveraged its experience developing custom in-person, virtual and elearning to create Soapbox. Above all else, Endurance Learning believes that every learning experience should be engaging and lead to sustainable change.
