HEAR YE, HEAR YE: Pearson officially announced applications for its second round of Catalyst, the incubator that the company launched in 2013. According to Diana Stepner, Pearson's VP of Innovation Partnerships, this application process will look slightly different from last year's. First up, Catalyst is offering a total of ten challenges "that Pearson is looking to partner with startups to address" (including "Learning Outcomes Rubric & Data Platform" and an "English Language Learning Game"). Catalyst will also be a virtual incubator this year, meaning that startups will not have to relocate in order to participate. (Last year, acceptees worked at Pearson's headquarters in London.) Applications for Catalyst can be found here.
