Edtech incubator launched

We were delighted to launch our latest flagship project on the 21 March 2013. The Edtech incubator is the UK’s first national education technology accelerator programme focused on helping support education entrepreneurs in schools, colleges, universities, startups and more established companies take great ideas to scale. We were joined on the evening by Matthew Hancock MP, Minister for Skills at the Department for Education & Department for Business Innovation and Skills and Sherry Coutu, Angel Investor and Founder of Silicon Valley Comes to the UK. Matthew Hancock said at the launch event:

“I’m delighted to give my support and put my enthusiasm behind this project. In the field of education innovation, I hope the Edtech incubator will play a key role in generating the ideas that will help transform education over the years and decades to come”
