I’ve compiled a list of accelerators I’m going to apply. I can’t decide if I should find developers and designers before or try to convince them that it’s something I need to do while in a accelerator?
I really think that I need someone who is either as passionate about digital education or wants to challenge themselves by building a totally new platform. Cause I can’t pay anything now, hmm…BUT IF SOMEONE IS INTERESTED, LET ME KNOW!
Back to accelerators, I have some favourites but any of these would be awesome to get in.
Emerge Education – Emerge Education is a 3-month, London-based accelerator programme for startups intending to improve educational outcomes worldwide.
Kaplan EdTech Accelerator – The Kaplan EdTech Accelerator, powered by Techstars, is a three-month intensive, mentor-driven, deep immersion program for twelve education technology startups.
1776 – Is more of a platform rather than accelerator, 1776 wants to help startups to reinvent the world by connecting the hottest startups with the resources they need to excel.
Startl – is a accelerator program that was active in 2013 for ed tech companies in early stages. I’m looking into if it still going on.
Y Combinator – This one is famous. Y Combinator provides seed funding for startups. Seed funding is the earliest stage of venture funding.
Socratic Labs – Accelerator + community + campus in NYC focused on educational technology entrepreneurship.
LearnLaunchX – LEARNLAUNCHX grows great education and learning companies. Based in Boston, a world education capital, LearnLaunchX provides select companies with seed funding, a place to work, an unmatched team of mentors with deep domain experience and strategic relationships, a cohort of fellow entrepreneurs and a structured development program.
BeeSpace –Beespace is a nonprofit incubator, helping to identify and launch the next generation of innovation nonprofits.
Now, I have to prepare a really good presentation/website/video and also set some legal stuff.
Some things to do during this month that now we officially started school again, is to tie up my Google Analytics repeat learning and Photoshop learning. Instead start learning more about After Effects and this course by Copenhagen Business School in Social Entrepreneurship.
