New UK Edtech Accelerator Announces First Cohort

EMERGENT: When one incubator wraps up, another begins. Emerge Education, the London-based edtech accelerator launched in October 2013, announced its first cohort. Three of the companies are from the UK, two from Bulgaria, and one from the U.S. Over the next 14 weeks, they will run beta tests with the program's 25 education institution partners and get biz and product development mentorship from the likes of Conrad Wolfram (from WolframAlpha), all in preparation for a Demo Day on April 14.
