Calling All EdTech Startups! Kaplan and Techstars are coming to a city near you…

We are kicking off the road show for the 2014 Kaplan EdTech Accelerator, powered by Techstars. The accelerator is a highly selective, immersive mentorship and seed-stage investment program for EdTech startups in the broadly defined learning and education space– including birth through life long learning, K-12, higher ed, work readiness, corporate training, summer camps, and after school programs in all forms of consumer education. Ten startup companies will be selected to gather in the New York City office for three months to build their products and businesses. Selected companies will receive up to $170,000 in funding for participating.

Separately, Don Burton (the Managing Director for the program) hosts open office hours which you can schedule online if you’d like to learn more about our program. You can also contact Don directly at don.burton@techstars.com.
