Changing Education's Mindset

About this Program

The Accelerator program is about 5 months long, starting in September and ending in February, with a Demo Day. We expect founders to be working full time on their startups, and invite them to come work in one of our shared workspaces located in Tel Aviv or Yerucham.

We work with early stage entrepreneurs on the development of their companies. Specifically, we focus on these areas:

Product-Market Fit
What problem are you trying to solve? Who are your customers? We’ll help you nail the market fit and develop initial market traction with your target audience.

Business Planning
Our team will work with you on developing your business strategy and plan to execute. As well, we’ll help you prepare an investment plan, and set up the financial side of your organization.
Industry business development
We are deeply connected to the education industry and to the world’s best edtech investors. We’ll help you prepare to meet and attract your best business partners.

Pilots
We’ll connect you directly to the market, placing your product in pilot programs, and getting lots of user testing and feedback.

Global Extensions
While your initial product launch might be here in Israel, we’ll work with you to develop a strategy for your next steps, whether those are in the U.S., Asia or another market. We’ll connect you directly to those education systems and work with you to develop the relevant partnerships in your desired geography.
