Entertainment & Ed Tech Business Accelerator Program
The Entertainment & Ed Tech Business Accelerator Program supports early stage companies developing entertainment or educational technologies in all their various forms.
Like other Idea Foundry accelerator programs, the Entertainment & Ed Tech Business Accelerator Program is comprised of smaller investments than our traditional Idea Transformation Fellowship Program. It provides up to $10,000 in cash, as well as optional business development services, performed over 1-3 months and focused on addressing one or two crucial projects to assess and develop the company's commercial potential.
Upon graduating from the Entertainment & Ed Tech Business Accelerator Program, companies are eligible to apply to—and receive expedited evaluation in—our core Idea Transformation Fellowship Program for additional funding and assistance.
Admission into the accelerator program is granted on a rolling basis. Entertainment and Ed Tech companies that apply to the Idea Transformation Fellowship Program but do not score high enough in our competitive evaluation process will be automatically considered for admittance into the Entertainment & Ed Tech Business Accelerator Program.
For more information please contact Gary Gardiner to schedule an informational meeting.
After this initial meeting you can access the program's application form here.
