Philly EdTech Meetup Message Board › 4.0 Schools is looking for people to join its education accelerator!
New York, NY
Is there an aspect of education that bothers you to no end? Have you already built an app / prototype / MVP in an attempt to solve that problem?
If so, 4.0 Schools would love for you to join us! 4.0 runs Launch, a two month accelerator program. 1st month in New Orleans + 2nd month remotely (if desired). Deadline to apply is October 1st. You can learn more here, but the core value-adds (we think) are:
An extensive test-bed in New Orleans, where companies can iterate based on real user feedback and secure their first customers (>80% of students are in charter schools)
No equity forfeited up-front
Access to the resources of a typical accelerator (coaching and connections), with the potential added bonus of follow-up funding
If this sounds interesting, feel free to reply to this list or message me directly (daviddaweifu at gmail dot com).
Many thanks if you've read to this point!
P.S. If you're just taking the first step to tackle challenges in education, we also offer Essentials: a 1.5-day crash course that will run 2x in NYC this year (Sep 22-23 + Dec 13-14). Applications for Essentials are rolling, but spots are filling up for the September date!
Also, thanks to Knewton for its recent shout out!
