We wrote about Pearson’s Catalyst programme a few months ago, and yesterday we met some of the people running it at a workshop event which formed part of the warm-up for this weekend’s Cambridge education Startup Weekend, which we’re helping to organise. In this interview, Pearson’s Debbie Akinpelu tells us what Catalyst is all about.
Following from our look at the first cohorts of Pearson’s EdTech incubator, we’d like to turn our attention to Kaplan’s EdTech accelerator to get a sense of what their inaugural Class of 2013 looked like.
At eltjam, we’ve mentioned EdTech accelerators a few times recently. But what exactly are they, and how do they work? If you’ve got a great EdTech business idea, how could an accelerator help? Stephen Parkes of Go Enrol is immersed in the EdTech startup scene and has first-hand experience of working with accelerators. In this guest post, he gives us an overview.
