Pearson Catalyst EdTech Accelerator Deadline April 4th
Apr 4, 2014
Pearson, the world’s leading learning company, announced the 10 challenges for the 2014 round of the Pearson Catalyst for Education accelerator program. Check out the 10 challenges here: http://catalyst.pearson.com/pearson-catalyst-challenges/. Interested startups need to apply by April 4th.
The Catalyst program matches startups with Pearson teams to deliver three month pilots, offers access to Pearson experts and global education network, and it’s virtual - so there’s no need to pack up and move.
Participating companies receive:
$15,000 for travel and related costs
Mentorship by Pearson executives and subject experts
Access to Pearson’s worldwide network
Pearson does not take equity as part of the program. Instead it’s the collaboration during the pilot that’s the key. In fact, two out of the five companies from the 2013 class already have partnerships agreements in place, ClassOwl and Ace Learning. Longer term relationships are in the works.Have some questions?
