Is an Edtech Accelerator Right for You

New York, NY - Feb 24 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Free


Starting a company is easy. But scaling it is another matter. The education market is notorious for being a tough playground. Fortunately, there’s help. The US edtech industry has birthed many edtech accelerators that can connect entrepreneurs to mentors, investors, partners and teammates—along with educators who can help guide product development. Oh, there’s also access to early capital.

Accelerators can turn great concepts into great businesses. But with more than a dozen options on the scene, which one is right for you? Should you join an accelerator? How do you know if and when you’re ready to apply?

This event, sponsored by Intel Education Accelerator, will offer perspectives from a diverse group of stakeholders on whether these startups are ready to tackle the market—and whether they’re truly addressing pain points felt by teachers and learners.

EdSurge’s Managing Editor, Tony Wan will moderate the discussion. Panelists will be announced shortly!

Hors d'oeuvres, beer and wine will be served.
