What Y Combinator Expects From Edtech Companies

X’S AND O’S TO JOIN THE Y: The folks behind Silicon Valley’s first edtech accelerator, Imagine K12, have kept pretty mum since merging with Y Combinator back in February. But this month they’ve posted guidelines for edtech products, or more specifically, “a common set of expectations to which Y Combinator will hold edtech companies, particularly student-facing curriculum products.”

It’s a fairly comprehensive checklist that covers best practices around communicating practices around product information, privacy safeguards, pricing and pilots. “By providing appropriate opportunities and support for demos and pilots,” the post states, “edtech companies can help schools and districts make wise decisions regarding the use of their resources, ensure that their partnerships are positive, and optimize for student success.”
