Applications open for Iowa Edtech Accelerator

Applications are now open for the first cohort of the Iowa Edtech Accelerator.

The Edtech Accelerator is an intensive, highly focused 14-week program aimed at early stage edtech companies. The first cohort of the accelerator program will begin March 2, 2020. Startups must be located in Iowa. The first cohort will be about five companies, and will take place in Iowa City.

Startups accepted into the program will receive $25,000 for 6% equity through the ISA Ventures Fund. Up to $75,000 in additional funding will be available to the startups if milestones are met following the program.

The program is a full-time commitment, requiring attendance during orientation week—March 2-7—and thereafter on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for scheduled sessions. On the other days each week, you’re working on your business priorities as needed.

The Edtech Accelerator will collaborate with regional business resources and education industry leaders in the state including ACT, Higher Learning Technologies, Iowa City Area Development Group, the University of Iowa and the Iowa Economic Development Authority.
