Venwise Partnership with Kaplan EdTech Accelerator Powered by Techstars

Venwise is excited to announce a new partnership with the Kaplan EdTech Accelerator powered by Techstars. The Kaplan EdTech Accelerator is a three-month intensive, mentor-driven, deep immersion program for twelve education technology startups. Erik Schreter and Tali Kurt-Galai, two of our New York Leaders, will be supporting the newest class as mentors. Over the next three months, Erik and Tali will be working with the teams selected to help them build leadership and culture within their companies.

This is the second year that Kaplan is working with Techstars to run an EdTech Accelerator, and over 500 startups applied to be a part of this year’s class. Collectively, the 10 startups from the inaugural class have raised more than $15 million to date. The educational technology sector is growing and startups have raised over $500 million in the first quarter of 2014, marking the single biggest quarter for capital committed to the sector in the past five years.

At Venwise, we bring together executives of high-growth startups to work through critical business issues with peers who understand their challenges. Throughout the accelerator program we will be bringing the teams together to help them excel through our peer-to-peer learning process, just as our members do.

We look forward to working with the Kaplan EdTech Accelerator Class of 2014. See you at Demo Day on October 22!

-Team Venwise
