Just a few weeks ago on April 27th, the EdTech Collider opened at the EPFL Campus in Lausanne.
The Swiss EdTech Collider is Switzerland’s first collaborative space dedicated to ambitious entrepreneurs transforming education and learning through technology.
They provide coworking space to all the members from early-stage to established startups. Unlike a classical startup incubator or accelerator program, they offer ongoing support and access to EdTech experts, industry leaders and investors. Already 30 Startups are currently working at the EdTech Collider.
“By bringing together entrepreneurs invested in EdTech and EPFL professors conducting pioneering research in that domain, this ecosystem aims to become an international hub for digital education… The members of the Swiss EdTech Collider wish to answer the challenges of an increasingly digitized society from primary school to continuing education, including corporate training.” ICT Journal
And now they joined forces with venturelab to start the new Edtech Vertical at Kickstart Accelerator to create a bigger impact on Education. The Kickstart Accelerator welcomes applications from EdTech startups based in Europe and within Switzerland until July 10th, 2017.
