Iowa EdTech Accelerator announces four startups for inaugural cohort

The Iowa EdTech Accelerator has announced the four companies that will take part in its first-ever cohort beginning this March.

This year’s Iowa EdTech Accelerator participants are:

  • Apprenticeship America
  • IEP Equity
  • The Agenda. Period
  • TuitionFit

The four selected startups will each receive $25,000 in seed capital, along with mentoring, coaching, prototyping support, and early corporate customer feedback.

The new accelerator program is modeled after NewBoCo’s current Iowa Startup Accelerator (ISA) but will focus only on startups in the education sector.

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. The intensive, highly focused 14-week program will be held in Iowa City.

The accelerator will hold a meet and greet with the first cohort of startups on Monday, March 2 at Merge in Iowa City.
