Welcome to the Edtech Incubator – the UK and Europe’s first education technology accelerator programme led by The Education Foundation, in partnership with Tech City UK.
Our aim is to help develop the UK’s Edtech Startup Ecosystem by running community building events, by supporting teacher entrepreneurs and startups through pioneering accelerator programmes – and helpng to create the conditions for education technology to be a major growth sector for Britain.
For over a decade in the USA and other fast moving economies globally, we have watched as education technology and innovation systems have been developed – from a mixture of foundation, corporate, venture capital and entrepreneurial support. Yet in the UK and Europe the ‘Edtech startup’ system has been slower to take on and incubate educators and entrepreneurs who have the vision to change the way education and learning is delivered.
So now the time has come – for the education entrepreneur, the student and teacher innovator, the game changers. Ben Southworth, former Deputy CEO of Tech City Investment Organisation put it succinctly “Create the space for entrepreneurs to operate and they will find the solutions”. So its our job to help support these people, projects and organisations and take them up to scale.
