INSIDE INTEL: Education technology accelerators are revving their engines once more. The Intel Education Accelerator, which officially starts today, has selected the participants in the first cohort for its four-month program. Of the roughly 200 companies that applied—half of whom were based outside the US—the following eight were selected:
Each company has received $50,000 and will get another $50,000 in convertible note when they complete the program, which is based at GSVlabs in Redwood City, CA. (The space also hosts programs for another edtech accelerator run by AT&T.) Demo day, where entrepreneurs will present and pitch to a gaggle of potential investors, is slotted for December 2.
