Is Beantown the next Silicon Valley of EdTech startups?

Any good startup starts with smart, curious people. We ask each other why and observe from one another. We seek comfort knowing we are collaborating with like-minded people who believe in the same values.

Its the strength of a team brainstorming and working together in close quarters that fosters growth; a seed with the help of a community that flourishes into a sustainable tree.

In Boston we have an EdTech boom! There are numerous publishing powerhouses (Pearson, HMH [now IPO], Cengage, Wiley, etc.) and companies new (Socrative) and old (Khan Academy) offering educational resources to K12 & Higher Ed markets.

LearnLaunchX is Boston’s first EdTech accelerator, with an inaugural cohort program for eight lucky startups. The chosen companies receive funding and a three-month residency at Back Bay’s Exponential sharing space.
