LearnLaunchX, a Boston-based accelerator program for educational startups, said it has selected seven companies to participate in its program.
On its website, LearnLaunchX says that its program provides these companies with seed funding and a place to work; it also plugs them into network of mentors and fellow entrepreneurs.
The new class of startups includes Book & Table, an educational marketplace for people to create, discover, and purchase personalized courses; Campuscene, a college search platform that serves both applicants and admissions offices; CueThink, which has created a game called Quantum, which is designed to be a game-based peer-to-peer learning platform for math problem solving; Hstry, a digital learning tool for constructing interactive historical timelines for the digital classroom; QuadWrangle, a software platform for more personal and valuable alumni engagement; Skaffl, a mobile-first teaching and learning platform; and UConnect, a campus recruiting platform that seeks to change the way colleges and universities provide career services to their students.
In a statement, LearnLaunchX partner Jean Hammond said: ““We are excited to work with some of the most innovative edtech startups that have technologies we believe will help transform learning and the business of education. Our entrepreneurs are coming here from all over the world, because Boston is the center of edtech innovation and provides unparalleled support to startups. We intend to take our companies to the point where they have validated their business models and become attractive prospects for investors.’’
