IMPACT EDTECH'S ACCELERATION
PROGRAM IS LED BY ISDI
We walk with the startups through the journey of growing from an idea to a market-ready product.
Along the course of 2 open calls, IMPACT EdTech will support 42 startups (21 per open call) in education and digital learning through a hybrid incubator-accelerator. We will validate, test MVPs (Minimum Viable Product) and prepare them to reach the market by providing early business and go-to-market support, in collaboration with education experts.
Startups will receive business and educational mentoring and training services both in Stage 1 (incubation) and 2 (acceleration). Experts will help to analyse the potential of the startups by short-cycle piloting in real educational settings to obtain preliminary impact assessment data that investors and clients require.
Project funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union, grant agreement No. 871275.
