Exciting Accelerator News!

We hoped that we’d see our Aspire Accelerator participants grow, succeed and reach their goals while they are part of our program… and so far, so good!

Lea(R)n, one of the companies in the class, has just announced a new partnership with the state of North Carolina. This means that the state can now easily harness the expertise of North Carolina’s 98,000 teachers to make decisions about what technologies work well in the classroom.

Lea(R)n developed LearnTrials, which empowers schools and their teachers to analyze education technology solutions with a research-backed methodology. One of the key barriers to ed-tech adoption is the difficulty for decision-makers to compare various tools that fit their individualized needs, and LearnTrials brings that clarity, transparency, and peer-feedback to ed-tech. This is a powerful tool not just for teachers and schools, but also for the development and expansion of the ed-tech ecosystem more broadly.

Congratulations to Lea(R)n and watch this space for more exciting Accelerator developments!
